Mete- of course you should wipe the residue off! I said that earlier.

If you're worried about steel wool don't use it. Having been around boats forever I've learned you don't use steel wool, you use bronze wool. Which you can get in a boat store.

When I refurbished an old .22 rf a few years ago I used bronze wool on it, no ill effects after about 5 years, but it was blued steel.
The 6 gun was once as common as the cellphone is today, and just as annoying when it went off in the theater.

Agree with bronze wool. I mentioned it in post # 12 above. Nice to know it can be found in boat supply stores.
