Hi Bill, a lot of info is quite scarce re the equipment used, most gun cleaning equipment is just listed without any dimensions, though there are some listings which give the length as 6 feet, others are rods that were screwed together. Rammers were different, though they often had a painted mark to show how far into the breech they should be pushed. It has been a matter of looking at period photo's and measuring with the Mk1 eyeball....not the most accurate (at my age) !

Was there a standard length to the poles, or is this pretty much whatever you want to do?
