Lead remover

What do you all find to be the best product to remove lead (especially the deposits around the forcing cone) from your pistolas?

Hmmm. I don't know what I use. It must work pretty good, however; I don't have any lead deposits.

The Lewis remover does a great job - especially on the forcing cone.

For the bore, I do use the strands of copper/brass Chore Boy scourging pads wrapped in an old bore brush..........it'll pull long strips of lead right out of the bore landings.

If y'all are getting leading from bp y'all are doing something wrong.

Your bullets are most likely improper size. Slug your bore and buy bullets .001" oversize.

No steel wool. You can use copper Chore-boy from your local grocer. Be sure its soap free. Wrap the Chore-boy around an old brass bristle brush. Pull it partially into the forcing cone and then spin it.
