PO Ackley did some test with larger bullets (I would not recommend this) and even fired an
8mm bullet in a 30/06 with out any problem (The bullet was extruded longer)When recovered
so after removing all you can just shoot it.
It also might be a good place to use a FEW Tubs Fire lapping bullets.
Just a few recomendations from an (OLD SALT) Ha. Ha.

Thought I would update the progress, after 2 days of soaking, after a few shots to loosen things up of course. I then used finger cots over the muzzle and filled the bore with BG industrial grade carbon-intake cleaner.
Then alot of elbow grease with GM top engine cleaner and was very pleased with the results. Alot of the coating came out, along with what appeared to be some copper as well ?? Not so sure about that. There was dark blue mix in with the powder, as if I had used a copper remover, the powder resembled heavy fouling. Soaking now for another day or so, then we'll clean and take a look at the bore. Wanted to remove it as mildly as possible and this seems to be working great.
Thank's again....GREAT ADVISE.
