Right, should you clean your rifle after every use?
This reduces the chances of rust and corrosion, making their way into your gun. In such cases, we recommended you give your gun a general cleaning every 250 – 300 rounds, and a more thorough deep clean after 3,000 rounds. When it comes to shotgun and rifles, this number is less.
In any manner, can you clean a rifle barrel too much? No such thing as cleaning too much. So plus one on the statement made, "listen to your barrel". Every barrel is different and when you have one that takes more than 2 or 3 shots to foul than it's something else that's going on or you have a barrel that's just an OK shooter.
In addition, are aluminum Cleaning Rods bad?
A good cleaning rod is either steel or plastic-coated, like the Dewey rods. It should be stiff enough that it will not bend; a bent rod will scrape against the rifling and that will be that. The worst rods are brass and aluminum, as they're soft and pick up abrasive crud, and they bend permanently out of shape.
Can a cleaning rod damage a barrel?
barrels are steel, cleaning rods are generally softer metal to prevent damage to the barrel.

Here's proof that just because it's dirty doesn't mean it's inaccurate. He still puts accurate rounds on paper despite his torture tests. They sure do. The gunk that builds up over lots of time and rounds actually tightens up the loose tolerances in a Glock.
While your mind is blown over this little truism, here's another: talking about modern hunting rifles, it's generally false that fouling decreases accuracy. ... You want to verify accuracy with your own rifle, because they all have different tastes, but generally, it won't hurt a thing.
This issue magically resolved when I started using Break Free lubricant mainly because WD40 is not designed to clean your guns. WD40 is a solvent that leaves very little oil on the surface. This means that more dust and dirt will be attracted to the surface and eventually you'll have a nice layer of gunk on your gun.
