There are no 'jacketed copper' 22's readily available. Most are copper washed or very thin plated.

Cleaned [the lead buildup] out with some steel scouring stuff.
I don't like using any sort of steel brush or scouring product on lead buildup. IMHO the risk of damage is too great. Wet patching the barrel with a lead-removing solvent, waiting an hour or so, and then scrubbing the bore with a new bronze brush will generally take care of .22LR lead buildup.
