On a 220 swift I saw a carbon ring that would fit on my finger along with a little throat erosion but not enough to make it shoot as bad as it was. Took the Iosso and got it down to bare metal again and voila---back to normal. This was from a guy who swore that his barrel was clean because the patches had “very little blue” on them so the barrel had to be shot out.. It was layered but all came out.
Love the Bore Scope----one look is worth a thousand expert opinions..
Very Good point Hoss! I've been tuning up a few rifles for friends that have supposedly "clean" barrels. Iosso is a great product as well as Bore Tech Eliminator. The first time I used Eliminator, I couldn't believe how much better it removed copper than anything else I've tried! I also agree that .243's are not barrel burners and there are a LOT of factors other than capacity to bore that cause wear, including but limited to, cleaning, powder charge, powder type, bullet, case design, barrel, number and width of lands etc, etc.....Rich
