Copper remover.

What is the best copper remover to remove copper and other things that foul your barrel while shooting? I have a stainless barrel.

    Wipe-Out Accelerator THEN Wipe-out foam. It will look like blue ink running out of the bore. No brushing, no patching and no work. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] Yes - its bore safe to boot.

    I have heard that the foam is not so good, because it pools at the bottom of the barrel, so only half of the barrel gets cleaned. Is this true??

    I have turned the gun over and applied wipeout a second time to see if the half clean theory was true and i got next to nothing out of the barrel. Wipe out flat works!

    Don't forget about Extreme Copper Melt. Pricey and you need a nylon bore brush, but it really works. Search threads on past input.

    I prefer Montana Extreme 50BMG over Wipeout, but they both work well. 50BMG is faster, but be careful, don't dare take a whiff of it as it is very strong. Use it in a well ventilated area.
