Ah, thought you were going to be shooting sooner than that.
Disregard.

Perhaps I am too late to this thread for this, but there are 'smiths and even some gun shops that will clean bores with electronic gadgetry such as Outer's Foul Out for reasonable fees. It may be worth researching.

Stop reading this thread Marauder. This is an OCD enabling zone, get out now while you still can.

"...the boiling water trick, the Windex patches, Siberian Yak Urine, whatever..." Only applies to corrosively primer milsurp ammo.
Ammonia does northing to steel, but it's not required for anything either.
Quit running endless patches through the barrel. Doesn't hurt anything, but it wastes your time. You need to put solvent in the barrel and leave it alone for 15 minutes or so to give it time to work.
"..."breaking in" and "seasoning" a new barrel..." Completely unnecessary. Especially for a Mosin-Nagant.

T,
We're well aware of what applies to what, VERY lengthy discussions with Mo on the cleaning & other issues, and my comments you quote were in regard to the corrosive surplus that he'll be doing most of his immediate shooting with.

Nobody's been talking about breaking in or seasoning his Mosin's barrel.

You might want to verify or confirm that statement.

I wasn't going to get into that, but there are many of us who disagree.

Though I don't perform a boiling water technique on my bores using mildly corrosive centerfire ammo, I'll definitely send boiling water done the pipe after using black powder.
