There is a very tight fitting at the back end of the barrel where the bullet goes. If I use a brush with solvent should the whole barrel be scrubbed or just the end? Very tight I sometime have to remove the casing with my knife. Thanks Ron

This is usually an indicator that it is time for me to brush out the bore with some good solvent and bronze brush. Dry it well, and things should slick up nicely.

Edited to add: I love those old Victors. Shot them every year for regional Navy rimfire matches, then they stopped doing the rimfire matches on teh side of teh Service Pistol and Service Rifle matches, and the Victors disappeared. I miss them.

The brush can run the full length if the barrel from the chamber end to the muzzle. Then I usually put the brush in about chamber depth and twist a bit with a good application of bore solvent, and then follow up with oiled patches and dry patches. Should only take a few turns on the brush.

If it is still too tight, then the smith needs to take a look.
