Bore Tech Eliminator works great on carbon and will get after the copper pretty good.

GM top end engine cleaner from your local Chevy dealer will work great on carbon also!!-- RHB

For both products !!!

Also if you pull a bore snake through the bore every time you fire,(If possible) it will hold
carbon fouling to a minimum.

Another old timer that works pretty well if you leave it in overnight is Kroil. Sometimes you can get a carbon ring buildup right ahead of the throat area which will destroy accuracy. Leave Kroil in for a couple days then rotate a bore bruch to remove it. It also leaves a nice light oil coating in the bore after dry patching......Rich

Use a bore "brush" rather than a bore bruch:D....Rich

I use Shooters Choice bore cleaner followed by Gunslick foaming bore cleaner. I use loose fitting patches to apply shooters choice, followed by tight dry patches, then the foam. Repeat the foam until first dry patch shows no carbon or copper color. I have'nt used a brush with this method. Clean often and take the cleaning supplies to the range also.
