I cant get hold of Wipeout here in Sweden. :-(
Im very careful when it comes to clean my guns, and I like doing it :-)
I dont use a nylon brush tho but a loose patch as writen on the sweets can, but ill try the nylon brush to day, thanks for the tips :-)
I used the nylon brush to day and It was quite effective, now I have to buy more Sweets since im running low.
I would like to try Montana Extreme 50 Bmg but that cant be found here :-(

You might try Butch's bore shine and hydrogen peroxide. Soak the bore really good and then SLOWLY push a cotton patch soaked in peroxide down the bore,SLOWLY AS POSSIBLE. You should see a foam come out the end of the bbl, blue is copper. Speedy recommended this process if im not mistaken, if i am someone will prolly correct me.
How many rnds do you have down the bore????
GG what about the bore getting heat tempered??? I am not for sure but i was thinking i read before that after so many rnds the bbl gets tempered and thus the burrs that are left become much less likely to get worn down. I might be wrong but im thinkin i read it sometime. Either way as long as you clean the copper build up off the burrs they will get worn down somewhat.
I am still a firm believer in making sure the first shot is always down a lubed bore so you prevent dry metal on bullet contact and thus what i guess you could call unecessary coppet streaking.
If you see this GG tell me what you think about my question, im curious.

I have limited acces to other chemicals then Sweets, Shooters Choise and Milfoam. Since it is conciderd hazmat itīs expensive to get it to Sweden even for large companys. I work at a gun store and we sell Pro-Shot and some of Birchwood Caseys stuff.
I now have 23 rounds down the tube. I tried two rounds loaded with Sellier & Bellot 147gr bullet which has a hard jacket that is magnetic, coverd in copper. It is very like the jacket that Norma used before and what the Swedish armed forces used untill about 1980. I tried them just because they are hard. They left very little copper in the barrel. After the cleaning I tried another Norma Jaktmatch which has an ordinary tombac/copper jacket and the bore was red again...
I have read two very detailed and respected pieces of literature on the cause of the chemical changes and or layering that is indicated by the gray/white color change of the steel and they disagreed with each other.
However, neither mentioned heat tempering as a bi-product or a result but one of the authors did describe what seemed like a description of what happens when something gets tempered.
Im in the process of breaking in my new Rem 700 ADL in 300wm.
Johan, that first sentence says it all, i.e., many recent Remington barrels are crap! Save your self further headaches, and just get a new barrel. That barrel will never work satisfactorily...use it for a tomato stake or something.
