Those with .40s, which jag/rod/patches do you use?

I hate the Glock rod because threading patches through a slit barely ever works. I was a jag tip and patches that will stick to the tips, but I don't know which ones work best.

Also, links to patches would be appreciated because I bought some Winchester patches that are supposed to work with .40s and I end up having to stack three on top of each other because one or two offers very little resistance.

How long does it take for that to get so filthy to the point of needing a new one? Seems to me after one use it would be pretty dirty, and you'd be cleaning with a dirty tool.

They're machine washable. I use a mix of simple green and regular detergent. Cleans em up pretty good.

Oh really? I figured they're blow apart after a wash or two... learn something new every day.

How often do you throw them in the wash? I feel like I'd want to do it every time after it gets caked with crap and gun cleaner.

The bore snakes I use for cleaning black powder cartridge firearms get washed after each use,if you think smokeless gets dirty quick well B P really does a job of them.
I too use simple green and hang to dry and find they with heavy usage last me three years or so.

How often I wash them depends solely on how dirty they get. They'll last through multiple washings.

I use a .41 or .45 cal brush, buy patch material in sheets and cut to fit and use a brass jag.

I take the barrel over to the sink and wash it out with dish washing soap and a nylon pipe cleaner.
