Just FYI everyone it is not an URL...its a PDF so you have to download a file to read it. And it is 45 pages long!

I've read this article, and refer the 'you don't ever need to clean a .22' crowd to it. Very informative, but I doubt that many of the naysayers will actually read all 45 pages.

I believe he did but I don't remember for sure. I have always been one to clean my rimfires on a regular basis but some of my friends are in the "Don't ever clean" camp. I usually clean every one to two hundred rounds which lots of times is after a day shooting off the bench.

Pretty much similar here, but a lot depends on the action type. For me, bolt actions and levers stay much cleaner and functioning better longer. Semi-autos get very dirty quickly, and depending on ammo, and can cause more malfunction issues. Semi-auto pistols get real dirty very fast from all the blow-back.
