I made sure to get an original cleaning kit for my Mosin, but upon research, found out that more modern cleaning solutions would be better to use. One major resource recommends Hoppe's #9 to eliminate the corrosive residues. That seems fairly straight forward. However, my main question is regarding rods vs snake/viper. I'm not sure which system to use and so far have found contradictory recommendations on the web. I don't want to waste money buying one tool when I should be using another. Any recommendations?
