The Mr. Clean for Removing Powder Residue

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NJ Written on August 26, 2013
This is by far the best cleaner for removing stubborn gun powder residue. I use it with all my pistols, revolvers, rifle and shot gun actions & barrels. I begin with the use of a regular cleaner of choice (e.g., Hoppes, etc). I cut the Lead-Away cloth into short strips - perhaps 1.5" long by .5" wide (22LR, wider for large calibers). Insert a strip in a loop jag, turn the strip 90 degrees so it looks like a "butterfly" and run it through the bore several times. I then turn the strip 180 degrees to expose the side that was compressed against the rod and run it through a few more times. The strip will get black as it removes the residue. It will amaze you how much residue it removes that your regular cleaner leaves! After that, a patch with you personal preference cleaner removes the loosened residue left by the Lead-Away cloth followed by a dry patch and one with a little gun oil and your bore is as clean as a whistle! The strips work great on revolver cylinder faces, forcing cones, any area where gun pwder residue can accumulate. One word of caution - do not get too aggresive in rubbing blued gun surfaces as it can remove the bluing finish.
Pros: Very effective, Little rubbing requred, removes what other cleaners don't
Cons: Needs to be cut into strips for maximum economy...
Would recommend: Yes
