To the OP, I have a bunch of Dewey rods, but I had accumulated mine when Dewey was the main maker of one piece rods. Tipton and Bore-Tech are both fine too. The biggest thing is getting away from the bore damage caused by the typical jointed aluminum rod set. Grit embeds in the aluminum, making a lapping tool out of it, and misaligned joints cause the sides of the rod to contact the bore.

The one issue I have with Dewey is that eventually the handle bearings give out, but I do have to say mine have a lot of miles on them.
I fixed the bearing problem by placing a steel washer inside each end of the handle for the bearings to run on. Works great, I can give the handle a spin and it seems to run for a very, very long time.

E. Shell is the resident long distance shooting guru. He has taught hundreds of MDS members to hit steel beyond 1000yds.
I'm confident he was busting the other guy's balls.

Dewey rods are the best I have every used. They have every size and some dedicated to ARs. It is very important to use the correct length rod to prevent damaging the barrel lans.
