shot some today

I got to shoot a few rounds today .38's in my revolver. They shot very well, very accurat. Shot about 20 rounds. Im very happy with the way they shoot, no leading in the barrel, But there was some in the cylinder, is this normal? And how do ya get it out, first time shooting cast boolits.

Clean with solovent on a brush, then some patches. If it is not heavy then that should do it. If it is heavy wrap a strand or two of a copper (test it with a magnet first) around a bore brush. Some solvnet, then a few clean patches.
Note for my .41 mag RBH I use M-pro7. I spray a bit on a patch run it through the bore a couple of passes, then do the same with the cylinder chambers. Let it sit for a couple of minutes. Spray a touch on a brush, run through a few passes in the barrel, then cylinder chambers. Follow with a wet clean patch. I then pass a dry patch through the barrel. Oil, then another dry patch. Takes me less than 10 minutes at the range while the gun is still warm.

Lewis Lead Remover (or clone) does the trick for me to cleanout lead in a jiffy.
