Re: Removing lead build up in barrel
Redwing-Many thanks for the info.O.K...I slugged my .45 Colt barrel at .449.
My cast and sized bullets are at .451.This was the barrel that had the most lead
build up.My .44 Mag mold only came in one size from Midway USA.A Lee
6 mold..at .430.My .44 Mag had very very little lead build up.I found it hard to
slug,due to it having a ported- barrel extention.I think I done a few things
wrong that you and others have mentioned.One,I fired too many rounds
without sticking a swab down the barrels every so often.Two,I fired too many
rounds too quick.Three,it was dirty powder-Unique.Build up was bad.
Four-I was at maxed out loads through out the session.
I plan on fixing all of these.Yes I am going through the learning process.
I'll get there.I'm not a quiter.Thanks Redwing.By the way.What is "Sweets"?
