Barrel cleaning ,what am I doing wrong

i have a used broughton barrel that i have been cleaning.about 150 rounds,
i am using motana bore cleaner and cooper cleaner.
soak patch with bore cleaner, let sit 30-40 strokes with brush, wet patch, patch will be black,
now i have repeated this cycle 20 times and the patch always comes out very black
Question, what am i doing wrong, or need to do, never had this issue before.
am i wearing out the barrel....

Re: Barrel cleaning ,what am I doing wrong

Order some BoreTech CU+2. You have a very fouled barrel, probably both copper and powder. I didn't have good results with the MT extreme. Also I would not brush so much, just patch and maybe brush once or twice a session. Another thought is, if the brush is brass you might be pulling color off of it, but that should be blue. I use nickel coated jags too.

Re: Barrel cleaning ,what am I doing wrong

when u say montana bore cleaner, are u refering to the white pasty liquid? if so, yea, STOP, it is like iosso or jb,(or any paste) and will always show black.

Do you think it is coming off the cleaning rod itself?

When I use a brush I use Nylon and I dont have to brush much. I use Butches Bores shine thats it.

Re: Barrel cleaning ,what am I doing wrong

I agree with above, get either some bore tech eliminator or bore tech CU+2. These are the best solvents I have ever used and they won't hurt the barrell. Just make sure to use something other than a brass jag, the solvent will turn the patch a blue green color. I use a nylon jag that works pretty good
