    What do you use to remove copper fouling? A Brass brush and Hoppes Bench Rest Copper Solvent is not working. :mad:

    I use BUTCHs...Its made by Lyman. Works great. But you got to watch and dont get in on stock or anything else but the bore. I disassemble completly before I clean.

    I like to use Sweets 7.62. Just follow the instructions on the bottle and it works great!

    Welcome to the Forum. Glad to have you with us.
    Is that 1895 GST the Stainless White Tail Engraved Model?? I assume it is the one in your avatar. If so, that is a beautiful rifle!!

    By the way, what is a welder's tigit?? ;) :D

    Greyhawk- thanks, yes, and thanks. I just uploaded some photos of it as well as my favorite side arm. The name is welders-tig-it, an old nickname I got since I was the only certified GTAW (tig) welder in the shop I worked in.:)

    Sorry 444.
    As an afterthought, I noticed when I shoot the jacketed bullets (any brand) slow versus rapid fire it leaves less deposits in the barrel making it alot quicker to remove the copper.

    To Remove Copper Fouling, Try this:
    1/3 ea. White Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide & 10% Ammonia.
    You can get it All at WalMart.
    Way Cheaper than "Bore Cleaners" & it Works Great.
    Do Not Use w/ a Bronze Brush, Use a Nylon Brush.
    It Will Eat Up your Bronze Bore Brush.
    Usually 4-5 Passes w/ a Wet Brush, Let it Set for 5 min & Run 2-3 Dry Patches.
    No More Copper! Then Run a Tight Patch Soaked in Ed's Red thru the Bore.
    Follow w/ a Dry Patch & your Done.
