A solid unsegmented cleaning rod. Preferably made of bronze and having a swivel handle. Ideally you clamp your rifle on a rest for a good barrel scrubbing.

I use a bore snake on my .22LR ... but

A) don't have much space to work with a rod
B) don't shoot it much

If you want to clean your barrel you need a proper cleaning rod, one piece and coated on the outside like a proshot cleaning rod.
Bore snake will never get the carbon fouling. If you shoot rifles especially male sure that as a general rule you pass the rod once for each shot fired. Use boreguide in your action and wipe out action from lubricants after using purposely made tools like sinclair makes to get the grit put where the bolt locks.

If you need a quick cleaning of the barrel in the field or after shooting then a boresnake will do, otherwise a proper rod and brush as already noted by others.

My advice is to make sure the cable or rod is coated and whenever possible use a bore guide, thus protecting the crown.
