Default .17 cleaning brush too tight!!!

Ok, so I bought a .17 cleaning brush made by hoppies and it just fits way too tight! Anyone have any recommendations on brushes that fit good and not so tight ?

I like a tight fitting brush that is a bit oversize. You might try Sinclair International or Brownell's for a good selection of brushes.

It won't be that tight after you use it a few times. They are supposed to be tight fitting they are bigger than the bore so they get into the groves.

Make sure that brush is ONLY traveling in the same direction as the bullet travels.

Breech to bore !!!
