Re: When is this barrel clean?
BulletBumper is correct about the naptha. It is a neutral spirit that evaporates very quickly and leaves no residue - think along the lines of brake cleaner. I have used both to clean stripped shotgun actions at the end of waterfowl season, etc for years with no ill effects.
I am with you guys on the Sweets, but I wanted to make sure all of the ammonia was out. After a couple of pristine patches I thought I was done, and that was my confusion after the naptha. What was on the patches was not green or blue, but was black.
Just wondering whats up. I dont think I will clean it beyond this point - I dont want to get OCD and ruin my barrel.
BulletBumper, welcome to the board!
