I have wondered if making your last couple of shots with a Non Corrosive Boxer Primed Round would help Blast some of the salts out of the Barrel.
Then Clean. Just an Idea.

None of my seven Mosins have ever tasted water, and their bores are still good. Any good bore cleaner (I am NOT including Hoppes #9 in this) will work fine. Hoppes Elite, CLP, the old GI surplus LSA and Milspec "Rifle Bore Cleaner", Birchwood-Casey Bore Scrubber - all work well.
I then follow with a good gun oil in the bore to help prevent corrosion. I live in humid Florida - it works for me.
Ditto for my other milsurps.
Some gun owners get the oddest ideas from the internut.

'Water dissolving salts' is an odd idea? 'Using only as strong a solvent as necessary' is an odd idea? Hmmm.....

Maybe you ought to read over the test I posted on the last page. LSA and CLP are not cleaners, they are lubricants. And I am reasonably sure your Mosins have seen water, because that is probably what the Soviets used to clean them.
