The 2.25”x2.25” patches are typically the best fit for the popular 9mm, .38 caliber and .357 caliber bores, as well as .40 and .45 calibers. However, the 2.5” x 2.5” patch is commonly used in .45 caliber barrels. Most pistols fall under this size range.

But though not common, the 6mm barrel perfectly accommodates 1 ½” x 1 ½” patches, as do the more popular .30 or .308 caliber rifle rounds. Hunters have relied on these sizes for generations.

The 1 ¾” x 1 ¾” Cotton Patch size is used in firearms with a 7mm bore, as well as measurements between .27 through .38 calibers. The .38 Special is still one of the most famous revolver-style pistols on the market.

Shotgunners typically use a 3”x3” size patch. And although 12 gauge is by far the most popular shotgun, the 3” square patch should serve 20, 28 and 410 gauge shotguns nicely as well. However, some shotgunners with 410 and 20 gauges sometime prefer sizes down to 2 ¼” square. As long as you can get the patch through the bore without breaking the rod while still maintaining surface tension, you are in good shape.

For muzzle loaders, which use mostly .50 caliber and sometimes even .54 caliber rounds, use the 3” patch as well.
