Been cleaning some rifles and trying to get all of the carbon traces removed. I have always thought that the barrels where clean when the last patch came out spotless, until the purchased a bore scope! Now I have become obsessed about getting every trace of carbon out of the groves, am I going to far?
“obsessed”, “every trace.”
Why? Unless you have an articulable reason, then IMHO, yes, you are going too far, wasting your time and supplies, and exposing your rig to potential unnecessary wear/damage.
