Default white creamy stuff coming out of my boresnake

Just finished cleaning my New Ruger 10/22 before I take it to the range for the first time and I used my new Hoppes boresnake. I am currently cleaning it and I noticed when I squeeze the snake this white paste like substance comes out. What the heck is this crap? Is my boresnake popping its own zits?

My guess, note this is a guess, is that the snake was wet and the oil in the snake reacted to it? Hydrogenation?

Maybe its just some cleaner that was in there, or maybe thats how they ship from the factory.

No idea what exactly it is, but yes, it happened to mine the first time that I cleaned it. I'd be curious to see if a concoction of gun oil, hoppes, a sponge, and water would produce a similar effect.

My guess was the factory preservatives but I just wanted to ask and make sure.

For real though, I recently bought a 10/22 and also have a boresnake, didn't experience anything like that. Like someone mentioned earlier, it must be factory lube that collected in the barrel.

Good luck bro.

Son, if I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times, not to linger when washing your naughty bits in the shower.

To be extra careful, use latex gloves when using a boresnake. Who knows where its been.

This thread title is "Classic"! Definitely on the top 10.

However, I can't allow myself to believe ChopperX didn't have a clue that his choice in wording was a double entendre. If he didn't, man, I don't know...

Yeah...that happens when you use it on a newer 22. But, not so much on bigger, older bores.
