Here's another place to get ramrods and reasonable priced.  I've ordered a couple of solid aluminum "Bench rods" from him.  He'll also cut them to what ever length you want.

That place is way cheaper than SpinJag. Go there.

SpinJag sells them in any length you want. They come black anodized that never wears off. You could have them anodized brown for a more traditional look.

Just watch for any signs of wear on your muzzle Pete. The aluminum rods got a lot of bad press from the high power comp shooters years ago for that reason. One of the accessories companies came out with the brass guide to protect the muzzle when using a rod that could hurt (wear) the muzzle end (to me that was one more thing to get misplaced).

I use a brass guide except during hunting. Not enough loading when hunting to hurt anything.

Those making aluminum ramrods claim it won't wear the muzzle. Somebody is wrong. Not sure who?

Aluminum is softer than steel. I've been using aluminum cleaning rods for decades with no apparent damage to muzzles.

That was my thought too.
