I finally had the time to try this on my brother-in-law's 30-30. Before I started on it my gunsmith couldn't put his gauge slug in from the muzzle end and when dropped in from the chamber it stopped 2" from the muzzle. I am happy to say it is now .30 caliber again! Hard to believe how much lead came out of that rifle. Thanks for sharing your method Ranch Dog!

Greetings Mr. Mike
That was an interesting read. Have tried some so called lead removers in the past. None really gave any better performance than using a bore brush.
Next time north I will get a bottle and give it a whirl. Load up some "hard cast" but undersized plain base bullets launched by a snoot full of 2400 through the 41 Dan Wesson. That should leave a pile of high pressure smears to work on.

hey Mike.
lazercast should work perfectly.
they did when I wanted to lead up my 41 mag ruger.
I was then able to remove it with a gas check bullet without the gas check installed by shooting it at a nominal target speed.
usually 2-3 cylinders worth of barrel leading was gone with 4-5 shots of the softer better fitting alloy.

I've used it in the past but SCLR is faster.
