Hiya,

I used to get them from Brownell’s but the’ve been on back order for like forever it seems. I have a couple revolvers I use for steel/action and with the velocity needed for power factors along with the long jump from case to forcing cone they lead pretty well…..

Thanks,
Tom

Try just using chore boy copper scrubber wires twisted on a cleaning brush. Mount it in a drill. Should work for you.

LS Stuff
They're mostly known for (excellent) cast bullet lube but I saw the LLR kits there as well.

Have the forcing cones in your revolvers been opened up for lead bullets?
I seem to remember that they needed to be opened to keep from leading badly. Does 14 degrees sound right?

I had some of those and was going to send them to you but I moved last year and they have disappeared. I haven't used them in years and have gone to the Chore Boys on a brush as suggested by James.

One caution, never spin up a brush or chore boy in the barrel with a power tool.  

The chemical de leading cloths work great on leaded bores for me.

5 seconds of a cigar lighter or mini torch up the pipe then brush and patch. Gone in a jiffy.

I was wondering what a "firebrush" was...  Thanks for clarifying Bruce!
