Default Any good barrel cleaning tips?

Does anyone have any advice on how to really make the barrel spotless or close to it? I just took in hour to clean my 835 and I used a flashlight to look down the barrel and there still seems to be a bunch of crud down it. I used powder solvent down it and it still seemed to not do the trick. Can someone help me with this please? Thanks

sometimes what you think is dirt may just be markings from everyday use

Absolutely! Get yourself a cleaning rod and cut the handle off of it. I wouldn't go out and get a $40 Dewey rod for this because it'll only be used for your shotgun after you cut the handle off. Anyway, after you cut the handle off put a brass brush on it. Take a patch and put some "Non-Embedding JB Bore Paste" on the patch. Wrap that around the brass brush and then chuck the rod into a drill. Use an old choke when running the drill/cleaning rod so you don't nick the threads. Go slow and don't stay in one spot for too long. You can't really hurt your barrel by doing this. Be sure to polish the throat and forcing cone area really well. Not only will you have a mirror finish in your barrel but I'd bet that it'll pattern better as well. Good luck! Simp

nice post Simp i will have to try this myself. Kdsberman the forcing cones in the shot gun berrel force the shot charge down in diameter to inter the bore then to enter the parallel section of the choke. i.e the longer the forcing cone can incrsase pattern density
