Re: copper removal

WOW, copper fouling after only 3 shots! Those are supposed to be pretty good bore/ gun cleaners. I have pretty good success with these ...




Check out Bore Cleaning Method and related threads below.

Good luck!

Re: copper removal

I use the Bore Tech Eliminator and Wipe out, usually just wipe out its pretty fast and very easy

Re: copper removal

+1 for wipeout or gunslick.......I also have used wipe out and gunslick and they work equally well but gunslick is cheeper.

What were the first three bullets, if different from right now. Barnes is softer than GMX and I don't know about E-tips. If they were Jacketed Noslers might be rough finish in bore caking up.

Thanks
