Re: copper fouling?

You might try this stuff out. It's getting some great reviews. I have some on order and will be testing it out. If you do a search you'll get lots of reviews. Here is the site.

Re: copper fouling?

TM Solutions is the best stuff I have used. I don't ever use a brush. On a rare occasion, I will use Sweet's, but most of the time it's not necessary. Don't like using Wipeout due to the mess. After cleaning bore, I will put a coat of gunoil down barrel, and run a dry patch down to remove excess oil.

I've read a few comments on how messy Wipeout is so I thought I would jump in and no flame intended here.

I take a piece of paper towel and roll it up like plug about the size of the chamber, then lightly insert it part way into the chamber, then push the bolt up behind it to keep it from being pushed out by the foam. Then I spary it down the muzzle. The foam will expand back out the muzzle and I take another paper towel and wipe that away. If you have a wood stock you want to make sure that you get it all off the wood because it will eat away the finish. Real easy to use IMHO and no more messy than pushing wet patches through a bore.

I've purchased and tried this product also. I would recommend Gun Juice as a better product. Gun Juice is more time consuming and tedious to apply properly, but the results will be better if applied properly, in my opinion. It would take too long to explain the details, but I summarize by recommending Gun Juice over Ultra Bore Coat based on my experiences.

Re: copper fouling?

I use Wipe Out Products called "Accelerator" and "Patch Out". Usually takes 3 applications to get clean. Once in awhile, I use the sprayfoam wipeout on a rifle, but I usually only use it for handguns.

Apply 2 patches of accelerator, then 2 patches of patch out. Sit 15 minutes then dry patch out.

After the first application with patches most of the big mess will be gone, so swap your jags for 2 wool mops. Wool mops are way nicer than cotton - they retain loft, generate suds better, dry quicker and last longer. I like to set up 2 rods - one with a mop for accelerator and the other with a mop for patch out.

Mop in the accelerator then mop in the patchout. Run the patch out mop up and down a bit, to work up suds. Sit 30 minutes to an hour, then dry patch out. Repeat mops again and dry patch to complete. If the gun will sit awhile before the next shoot, finish with a lightly oiled patch.

If you're not shooting a hand lapped barrel, you may need to scrub a bit with a brush after mopping, but don't spend much effort. Let the chemical do the work.

I spend the waiting times going through my targets, prepping brass and other reloading chores....

If that's not good enough, try boretech eliminator, witches brew or slip2000 copper cutter. These are all very good copper removers. Just don't leave them in the barrel long, or bad things can happen.
