I am working on a project to clean up the bore as much as possible on a Model 1885 chambered in 40-70 SS
Years of carbon/powder/lead build up but there appears to be good rifling under it all.
Have been running patches soaked in carbon remover down the pipe and removed a steady stream of brownish goo.
Suggestions on a safe way to get more results??
I appreciate the help,

I Have found soaking in a product called Gunzilla for a couple weeks horizontal pretty good. I used to use 50;50 Kroil and Shooters choice , or Kroil & Hoppys 9 BR. Either mixture is good . Now I alternate these products and have patience and leave it soak. But it is amazing how hard it is to clean somebore crud build up, when for antique gunked up car parts just usually takes a short soaking of any solvent and blows clean with compressed air in 1/2 hr
Day and night effort to clean ?
I have tried many bore cleaners looking for that magic solvent, but havent found it yet
Happy New Year All !
