    After seeing a few threads, I've started using Triple seven powder. How do you clean and what about plastic from sabots.

    Usually a brass brush won't remove plastic. I usually use a solvent that I use in my shotgun. The powder residue is the bigger issue. I will get some T/C solvent.

    A lot of traditional ML guys eschew all petroleum products in their smokepole. However, with the new modern inlines, I can't see where that idea stands up.

    Me? I started using Ed's Red on my modern inline. Google it. It's a DIY recipe. I started using it over a decade ago on all my firearms.

    I shot Triple 7 out of my LHR Redeption this year. The new breech plug arrangement is cool, but it gets seriously crudded up. I wrap it up overnight in a 2X2 patch soaked in Ed's Red, and I can wipe it clean the next day. The acetone in the formula is great on shotgun wad residue, so it also works on sabots.
