    Long time favorite of mine for 1911 barrels. I wrap it around a blue Nylon brush from Iosso and go back and forth until I can feel the barrel just start to get warm... that usually does it, if not, reorient the brush and repeat. Strong pref for the Chore Boy but the finer-spun stuff works too.... not quite as well though. Plus it's made in China and Chore Boy is made in Mexico....
    at least that's closer.

    Cheap at True Value, $1.49 per pad, delivered to store for free! Cheaper than Amazon.

    Caution, I have some of this now that is magnetic under a copper plating apparently. I would say "avoid".

    this stuff has been recommended by shotgun shooters for years to get out plastic fouling from the wads. When I was big into skeet and trap I used to wrap some around a worn out bore brush. Worked like a charm.

    Department of Duh here.

    I see the very first post carried the warning about steel.

    So does Mercury!

    Amazon carries them if you don't feel like driving all over town. $6 for 4.

    Or $28 for a crack pipe starter kit:

    Me too, I was so confused.

    I see where the OP wanted total removal of lead. But I don't mind leaving a bit on my bore so as to not need to put rounds back through it to get back to optimal accuracy. Anybody share that line of thinking?

    Uni-Vibe, can you post a pic or link to the exact product. They have pads and brushes and .....which is the real deal?

    Vinegar & peroxide mixed 50/50 filled in to a plugged barrel will dissolve lead with the caveat to follow up with a baking soda solution to neutralize the acid/oxidizer.
