Re: Aguila CMP .22LR Golden Eagle match
Much lead goes down many a barrel and it's been that way since the begining of the rifle hundreds of years ago. Why this article has to turn over an age old fact is beyond me. Shooting lead and cleaning a barrel is absolutely normal (I hope) for any gun owner except glock.
"LEAD AND COPPER SOLVENT" jumps out me when walking down the gun cleaning aisle - isn't this part of gun ownership we all take part in? This article is absolutley senseless, furthermore I can tell you my 10/22 has shot tens of thousands of lead rounds, still can get a clean lead free patch out of it after a moderate cleaning with a quality solvent.
The copper washed lead barely prohibits lead from depositing on the lands and grooves of your barrel anyway, and if thats not enough, copper can be worse than lead to get out a barrel!
