Leading in the barrel

Post by Multiracer on 9/29/2017, 8:07 pm

First topic message reminder :

I have a Kart 45 NM barrel that leads in the chamber as well as the first inch in areas.
It is really stubborn to clean.
Any recipe ideas so I don't over scrub with the brushes ?
I shoot, jacketed, swaged and cast bullets virtually all the time.

I will look into this as this leading occurred on a brand new Kart.

Size your bullets to .453".   Try just a few at first.

I've switched to Kroil for all my cleaning, use it regularly and you won't even need to soak it.

I have found a cleaner from Brownell's I think it is called EZ soak. Comes in a jar and you just dump your parts (.45 barrels fit) and give it some brushing then oil it. Also carb cleaner helps a lot with bad fouling. Strips the oil though so always oil after using.

I found this a couple years ago while dealing with heavy leading in a 625 revolver.  My Lewis Lead Remover is currently for sale. It is magic to me and for a couple bucks
it dang sure is worth a try. In my 1911s I swab a couple times with a mineral spirits patch then run a brass brush wrapped with BF 45 strands per instructions. Same results in my revolver. YMMV... but I doubt it.....http://big45metalcleaner.com/
