WalGreens is the only place in Florida I have found them. Bought all they had last time. I'll check again and let you know if they have more. I'll box em up at no additional costs. (pads and shipping only)

The brush on a rod in a drill will really speed things up - on my guns, it takes a few seconds.

Many years ago I saw a gunsmith (my cousin), take 4/0 steel wool on a bore brush and some solvent, clean up a old shotgun barrel with a high speed drill. Work great getting out the crud.
After that he used some new 4/0 steel wool and some gun oil and gave the barrel a good polishing for about five minutes..................... the barrel look spotless when he got done.
Steel wool will not hurt the barrel...................as long as you use solvent or oil during use.

Don’t know about other barrels but Winchester Proof Steel is quite hard, so hard in fact, that at times the custom shop engravers were unable to engrave receivers and they had to be sent back to be annealed. Steel that is as hard as that will not be harmed by steel wool.

I got a lot of steel wool that I can use when I am ready. It is good to know that the bore will clean up without harm.

I will try the pure copper next when I get some.

Seems I have tried a lot of stuff, may as well see what copper does.

I had a old double barrel from the 1920's that looked bad some time ago.
It cleaned with a lot less effort and chemicals. It surprised me that it became mirror bright and smooth.

Thanks, yall

Just use a drill with copper wool wrapped on a bronze brush.
Dip in your choice of cleaner and the crap will fly.
Start slow then wick it up you'll feel when the crud breaks loose.
Keep the brush wet - it's sloppy but cleans high volume crud the best.
