Took my new BCM upper out to the range today, and upon return to the house, and trying to clean up, I can't get the damn bronze brush or jag to fit properly.

I purchased a Pro-Shot bronze brush (.22cal .223 cal #22CF), and a Kleen Bore Jag (220-225cal 243-250cal/6mm).

The brush barely enters the barrel, and the jag with a standard patch barely enters as well. But both will not fully enter.

I have cleaned my pistol a million times with a regular .40 bronze brush, and the .30cal brush and jag from the same manufacturer took care of my Saiga 7.62x39 just fine. But I cannot get the AR barrel cleaned.

Am I doing something wrong here? I'm figuring on returning to the shop I bought the brush at tomorrow with the upper to see if I am misunderstanding anything, but this is extremely frustrating.

Check that they're marked on them (not just packaging) correctly.

Check that the cleaning rod isn't the wrong size.
