I have an assortment of items, pieces of kits I've accumulated over time, to suit my needs, but looking at the kits on that page , the Real Avid kit would suit your needs the best for the money, only thing additional you would need is a 30cal bore brush, and of course solvent and lubricants.

i would suggest that you avoid the kits. specifically, those with the multipiece rods.

after too many of the cheapo aluminum rods breaking i got a single piece rod, actually 3, for different calibers. the rod coated with some flavor of ?plastic? so as not to damage the barrel. (as opposed to a metal rod)

you can buy the brushes and swabs you need.

the junk in those little cases just isn't worth it for me. (ymmv)

yes, it's a little more expensive., but i got tired of the junk.

good luck on what you choose.

Order everything you need from Dewey including one of their one piece coated rods. They have jags, patches, brushes, etc. It will come packed in a heavy duty cardboard tube that will work great for storing the rod[s] and toting them to the range if you clean at the range which is what I do. When I get home I put everything up and can immediately take a nap . Order 5 or 6 brushes.

That's what I ended up doing, so I have a few older kits just lying around.

Get exactly what you need, for your caliber(s), in the quality you want/need instead of having a bunch of stuff you have no use for.

I agree on the single piece rod. Get one of those, then jags, bore brushes and chamber brushes in your caliber(s). Cleaning patches to suit, then you have your kit and are done. Well, except for the nifty box, or box that just doesn't work.

Single piece rods are great for the work bench at home, but for me are troublesome to carry with me on a trip to the woods, I have a quality multi-piece rod for my kit that goes with me in the truck.
