    I've bought most of my brass ram and range rods here...10/32" each end.
    Then I add a 2" wooden ball that has a 10/32 bolt already through the middle to screw on the end of a rod.

    That RMC is an interesting site.
    I nearly stroked out looking at their bp prices. :headslap:
    But, having tried to purchase plain brass rod, I have to say, the prices of their made up ram rods seems quite reasonable. Especially considering one will give a lifetime of service.

    Make your own! FWIW I have a great metal supply shop near me and can but 6' lengths of solid brass and 'thick-walled' brass tubing for $12 to $16 per piece.

    The tubular ones are wicked AWESOME ... as only a guy from Bahstin (Boston) can say it ...

    No, I think the misspell WAS a result of those little 3" GRASS rods. :rotf:

    I've made my range/cleaning rods out of brass tubing & S.S. rod. The brass tubing rod is the one I use during the "woods walk" shoots & the S.S. rods are the ones I use at the bench. The brass tube is capped at each end with a brass plug that is silver brazed on and tapped 10-32 for accessories on one end and a handle on the other when not in the thimbles of the rifle. I use a nylon muzzle protector on both rods :wink: .
