    4OOOO steel wool....3 n 1 oil and a steel bore brush like for shotguns. Wrap the brush with the wool....oil it up good....stuff it in the breech and turn on the drill...

    Good idea but make darn sure that you thoroughly clean the chamber and I would run a patch through from the muzzle end to make sure you don't end up with any of the wool left anywhere. Steel wool would not do much for accuracy if fired down a barrel.....Rich

    A chamber doesn't have to be very dirty (or the cartridges) if it is neck sized only..
    Proof is in the windy high desert country of most western states where the "gritty" dust in the air may cause the problems like the OPs...Another reason for FL hunting ammo...

    Food for thought,
