Have you tried using a conker, I find soaking them in the oven and baking them in vineger works best

All the best James

James my Tin chicken guru , I'm having a scan on my left Conker on Wed, never tried soaking them in vinegar though ( once tried dangling them in sweet corn juice ) or ramming one down the barrel, although I have recently re-finished my stock with cumquat and sasperela oil.

Like the idea though

Default barrell cleaning

used the vgf paste as per instructions, until barrell was clean, then for an experiment tried napier pellet lube on the pull through felts and they came out dirty, can,t shoot well enough to assess groupings, seems to me that I will use the pellet lube in the future.
