    Just gonna use BK to flush dirt from the lugs down the barrel as other poster suggested...quick solution. AR's get dirty quick shooting range ammo. I figure it's corrosive and like to get it out of weapon asap.

    I don't know of any 5.56 or .223 ammo on the market that's corrosive.

    And I have never heard of using BF to clean said corrosive residue.

    Air: While there is corrosive ammo on the market, especially in ComBloc calibers, it's rare to see it in any western calibers. Even Wolf, Brown/Silver/Golden Bear, Tula, etc. in .223 or 5.56 is non-corrosive. In fact, I'm not sure I have ever seen corrosive 5.56 ammo.

    I wouldn't even worry too much about cleaning. I've run ARs well over 2k rounds between cleanings by just keeping them lubed. In my experience, SLiP 2000 Gun Lube or EWL are the best choices on the market.

    I don't think I ever used more than a chamber brush and WD-40 or Remoil to clean the lugs on my AR's.

    True statement,.........however, mine get cleaned to near spotless.
    Never know when those Zombies are going to attack! :shocked:

    Recently started using Slip 2000 EWL.......awesome stuff!
    Possibly the best I've ever tried.
