HSW is the best all-around cleaner out there. I like to finish up with CVA Powder and Plastic Solvent to get any remaining gunk out. When you use HSW though, make sure you dry it well as possible. Water will find any powder residue you didn't and it can get bad if you leave it for very long! I just dry off what I can, wait a couple of minutes (the heat will dry the rest), run a couple of patches with Rem-Oil to displace any remaining moisture, then slather the bore with Bore Butter (the heat melts it into the pores). No more maintenance to do until you shoot again.
