Did I hear you say "000 Steel Wool"?

That sounds pretty darn drastic IMO?!?!?

I agree. Steel wool just doesn't sound like the best application, when dealing with barrel grooves.

Re: Need opinion/

I would not warrantee one of my rifles if the customer used steel wool to clean the bore, neither would any barrel maker on the planet.

Even a couple passes on a match grade stainless barrel with this proceedure will ruin the mirror finish of the fine barrel.

A little more elbow grease and patients will work much better. Just my opinion though!

Good Shooting!!
