    Bronze or brass brush is your best bet right now. If its a light coating then they will make short work of removing it. Bore scrubber will also help loosen the rust. After scrubbing the bore, run a clean patch through it to remove any particles still remaining

    Its most likely there because the rifle was fired with corrosive milsurp ammo and left uncleaned. If it isnt bad I have had luck with sea foam deep creep and a bronze brush. The deep creep will lift the rust out and the bronze brush will ensure the stubborn crap comes off. Then follow with some more deep creep and some clean patches. then clean the bore as usual.
