you mean the cotton thingy's? yeah I have a lot of them I got with my EB22, I run them through the barrel once every two tins of pellets and they are always dark and lead stained, so probably they do their job.

I do the same thing.  Only size I have are the .177 and they do appear to do a nice job of cleaning for what they are.
