Default Carbon fouling

Just wrote a post on my blog about my adventures in removing carbon fouling from my rifle barrels.

If it helps anyone with the same kind of problem or helps them avoid it, I'll be happy.

Carbon Fouling Removal

BTW... I don't consider myself any kind of authority. Just telling how it went for me.

Another great article, Dave. In a way, I wish I had a borescope. On the other hand, I don't know if I want to see what my barrels look like.

Dude, that was a great read. Lots of good info. I have been using Montana Extreme and JB's for a while. Good to know that they work as good, as I have always gone by the white patch. Prolly had better get a borescope.

What are your thoughts on carbon rings in the throat area and how to remove them?

I always pay extra attention to cleaning the throat area. You can feel a carbon ring starting to form on a tight dry patch. If you have one, or even just suspect it, short stroking the throat area with JB is how I have always dealt with it and it has always worked.
