Can anyone recommend a good bore snake for this gun I just bought?

I don't like bore snakes because of all the grit they pick up then you have to wash them.
Look at the Otis pull thru kits.

I have several. The only real concern I have is that the "body" of the snake is longer than the barrel. You want to always be able to get hold of the "big part" in case the pull string breaks.
This part is fairly unlikely with the name brand snakes. I watched with great concern as Son and Grandson grabbed a used bore snake that had been stored in a ziplock bag, squirt it with CLP and drag it through a 243. I couldn't stop them quick enough. The snake was a .30 cal and a nearly new one at that. Didn't break but it sure as H pulled hard.

Bet that bore was clean!
