What is a ramrod
This is a thin steel rod, which has a handle at one end and a special nozzle into the other. It is used to push various stuck objects in the barrel and remove combustion. In most cases, however, the ramrod is used to clean the barrel of a firearm or air gun and is part of its maintenance accessories. In some cases, it can be used for cleaning a hard-to-reach places.
When and how it is used
In order to clean the inside of the barrel, a soaked cloth could be used on one side, which is passed along the entire length by means of a ramrod and removed on the other side. This is how all the dirt sticks to the towel. This process should be repeated several times. Ramrods are required whenever there is a need to clean the barrel of a firearm or air gun. This is usually necessary after each shooting.
