Cleaning powder

New to reloading, is there any truth to a powder out there that cleans brass out of the barrel?

Re: Cleaning powder

There are not powders that clean brass out of a gun barrel because there are no opportunities to get brass into a gun barrel. Copper however does get deposited from copper jacketed or solid copper bullets and must eventually be removed to maintain accuracy. I seem to remember a powder that would minimize this effect but I canít say for sure. Were I new to reloading as are you, Iíd worry about everything but this issue.

Re: Cleaning powder

I wonder if you were thinking of Hodgdon CFE223? It's suppose to reduce copper fouling. It's not something you load up a few rounds and send down the tube to clean up your barrel.

I apologize I mention to say copper, got brass on the brain. I guess just trying to protect my investment.
