Just picked up  a Savage  B17 FV-SR Overwatch in 17 HMR. What caliber specific cleaning accouterments  should I consider? How do you go about cleaning your .17?

Besides the obvious bore brush, patch holder and mops, you will probably need a new rod. Unless you use a bore snake.

Proshot makes a nice/good 17 cal rod, and I've found their products at Rural King as well.  If you are a user of bore guides, they are difficult to find for the .17's, you can try using a ink pen body for a bore guide, it may or may not work for your rifle but they will work on TC contender barrels.

RVB Precision makes a pretty nice bore guide for the .17's if you want a real bore guide, google should turn the business up.  

A patch worm kit will work, but not sure if it will remove the copper you're gonna get.

Thanks, I think I'll start with that and go from there as needed. May even give the DIY version a try.
