Just like the subject saids. How do you do it?
I knew someone would say that. The barrel will probably wear out before that becomes problem. If you are shooting in competition okay I can see the concern. But the effect is almost unmeasurable to anyone else.Doug Bowser said:The use of WD40 to clean a bore, does not remove copper or lead deposits.
We will have to agree to disagree. The buildup of copper deposits is a continuing thing. Also, WD40 will not remove graphite deposits from the bore either. The buildup of graphite in the bore will cause the breech of the barrel to be smaller than the muzzle. Accuracy suffers. I have used the techniques described to clean my M1 barrels during competition in the 80's. My average life of the M1 Garand barrel was 9500 rounds until 600 yard accuracy suffered.Doug Bowser said:I knew someone would say that. The barrel will probably wear out before that becomes problem.

Mix 1/4 cup of Murphy's Oil Soap concentrate with one gallon of water. Swab the bore and let it set 1/2 hour. Dry the bore and clean with Hoppe's #9.sidroski said:What do you use on corrosive ammo? I've heard ammonia and hot water. I also go from the breach to the muzzle but what do you use for for the chamber in a nonstandard caliber using corrosive ammo.
