Yes the Iosso will come out every single time as black as coal even on a brand new tube. I know of many folks who Iosso a new tube prior to ever sending a round down it. Make sure and use the Iosso brushes as they really get into the lands and grooves to remove all traces of fouling. To remove it I will use brake cleaner (same stuff as guns scrubber) except it is 2.49 a can by the case to blast off your brushes then hose out the bore guide and barrel. The put the copper brush back on and then use your solvent (I use Butches) to get the remainder of the paste out. When the tight patch comes out snow white you are done. When you push a patch through the bore it will feel as smooth as glass.
Try this and let me know what you think.. I have done this too many times to count. The odd thing about this is my friends dad had a rifle that he swore had been shot out because the accuracy had gone to to over 2moa at 100 and he was ready to retire it. I got out the BS and it had almost 50 years of carbon fouling and a carbon ring you could wear on your finger!!!!! It took me almost an hour but finally got it clean (used 3 treatments of the Iosso procedure) then using some 30 year old ammo that was loaded with the old IMR metal cans proceded to shoot 1 inch again. Made a convert right then and there of the BS and the Iosso.
