the standard thinking is that you push dirt from the breech towards the muzzle. this comes from long guns where you don't neccesarily completely dissassemble them to clean them and you are trying to keep slurry (lube and crud) out of the action.

however, since we have the luxury of yanking out the barrel very easily, the crud won't get into the action and as long as you're cleaning it all out, it really doesn't matter which way you go. just make sure you don't leave crub in the chamber.

i use a dedicated bore cleaning to scrub the barrel. and it suggests that you rub the patch back and forth vigorously in both directions to loosen the stuff. then run clean patches until no more residue is coming out. but break free works great for everything as we all know.
