I just hose my AK's and VEPR SVD down with ammonia/windex and blow it out with hp air. Then I clean it like any other rifle. Ammonia on corrosive ammo is like baking soda on acid.

I've read opinions to the contrary. For one nothing works better than just water, the warmer the better. Also that Windex didn't actually have ammonia in it anymore. Though they themselves are very misleading about that fact.

This ^

HOT water. And only hot because if you turn the action upside down under screaming hot water and it washes away the corrosive salts, the metal will heat up and dry quicker.

That's it. No special chemicals or magical BS required. This myth has been busted 1000 times over.

I shoot 7n6, 54R of varying types, Yugo 7.62, TOK, etc.

IME 7n6 and Russian 54R like the copper washed stuff is the only stuff I really have to flush good. Most times the Yugo I could just swap to a mag of Wolf / non-corrosive and blast it out. But the 7n6 collects that residue in the brake and will rot the threads up with a quickness...

Hot water, dry, light oil - done.
