I use Chore Boy copper scouring pads.  I put some friction tape on the end of a brass rod, then wind some strands of copper from the Chore Boy pads around the tape and run it through (or just push a piece of the pad through).  Copper removes the lead.

What do you use to de-lead the barrel? My R&S needs the work done. I'm thinking about putting a piece of 100% copper scrunge on the end of the wire brush for more aggressive cleaning. I'm using Hoppes #9 for my liquid.

Yeah, I get it.  I use BP in the Vetterli but that's about it.  I gotta say, cleaning smokeless isn't that much easier, especially when using cast bullets and the wrong lube.

Dave, I gotta be honest with ya. I've mostly given up shooting bp in anything. I like the period correct cartridge revolvers (or conversions) better. I use 7.7g of unique under a 230g rn lead slug and clean up is a breeze. Too old to walk the rifle  trail and too lazy to clean my gun's....ain't the "gold plated" years a bitch? LOL BTW, the Russian only has a 6.5 inch bbl and using the trigger guard spur really makes this a great gun to shoot.

Now that looks like a beefy gun.  Only BP, right?

I brought my Walther P38 to the range the other day, loaded it up, fired away and the slide top cover decided to go for a trip on its own.  It took the rear sight, automatic firing pin lock and spring, and the firing pin retaining pin with it.  I dragged a magnet on a string through the grass and managed to find all the parts.  These guns are known to lose their slide covers for whatever reason.  Next time, I'll tape it in place.

I've been soaking a spare Savage & North cylinder that I got to try and replace the nipples.  Looks like I'm heading back to BP.

I got a Uberti S&W Russian for Christmas and have bewen working on the action and dialing it it in over the last few weekends. Cause she's just so pretty, I added a couple of early 1900's quarters to the grips.

It's not the shooting I was talking about - that's secondary.  It's about keeping a forum going which won't happen at this rate.  But that's OK, too, I guess.

We have 10 acres of woods left out in the sticks.
Whenever we go out there for an afternoon, I take a 22 and bounce a plastic bottle around.
Just because we don't get to shoot Black anymore don't mean that we don't remember.
