Doesn't fit in a .22,
This review is from: Hoppe's Boresnake Viper Rifle Bore Cleaner (Choose Your Caliber) (Sports)
I have the size advertised for a .22 to .223, 5.56. It's not even close to fitting in a .22, so it really shouldn't be listed. I think even a .223 would be tight, and could see the cord breaking in the barrel.

Standard .22 LR Barrel is .220 in Diameter or 2.5mm perhaps tighter as that is the Bullet diameter. The .223 Rem or 5.56 NATO is .222 or 5.6mm in either case, I can not imaging a barrel much smaller then .217" and that would be really pushing it (only on very specific target rifles) The Brass scrubbers seem to be the thickest part at about .200" Kind to hard to measure but if it is not going straight and you have a "Tight" match barrel" I can see it being a pain to pull. But it should go through. unless the string breaks or something was not put together right. The Plastic "guide" is pretty thin 0.19 or so.
That being said, mine broke in my Match Barrel for 5.56X45 I am not amused at the moment, and me with Calipers is a dangerous combo.
