      Danny, looking forward to meeting you and Albert tomorrow. Sorry to hear of your misfortune. What I have found out about this shooting thing is that you can read all you want and ask all the questions you want, but some things have to be learned by trial and error. Very seldom to you hear of a good shooter making the same mistake twice. If they do they do not tell. Safe travels tomorrow morning. WWE

      If you poured more carb cleaner back on top of the dewey rod and leaving it for short time wouldn’t soften back up?

      I ment after it soaked for a few minutes, wouldn’t the rod soften back up so you could push it out.

      Wow I hate that Danny but thanks for sharing. I soak with carb cleaner often
      But I know now not to use a coated Rod. Luckily I have a short brass rod I use
