Yeah, this cloth I buy for my stainless S&W 629, called lead wipe, works pretty well, but it is still alot of work to get the lead out from the cheap lead wad cutters I shoot, especially at the pressure cone area of the barrel.

BTW, I only have this problem when shooting cheap lead wad cutters. When I have used ammo for hunting with this "Hog Leg", I have no problems cleaning afterwards. (copper clad) I have hunted and taken pig with this pistol. Thats what I bought it for. If I had it to do over again, I would have bought it in a blued steel version.

I have taken out many feral pigs with my Ruger Bisley 44 Mag. I use a 330 grain hard cast bullet for bone breaking & deep penetration. I do get some leading but it's easy to clean.

Get over it!!! I bought a tube of flitz for over $20 bucks. The amway product works better and for less that $5 bucks for 8.8 oz. I do not sell amway. Just trying to help you and others save some $$$$$$$$

I do sell AmWay and can attest... well, not really. Easy dude, I think WDB was just razzin' a little.

Anywho, does EITHER Flitz or the Amway stuff effect the way the finish matches the rest of the gun that is not wiped with it? I have only used the lead removal clothes that have been mentioned.

Flitz will not damage any finish what so ever, but it will easily remove GSR and lead.

I do not own stock in Flitz, nor do I work for them. It's just a great product. One tube of Flitz will last a life-time, so who gives a crap if it costs a buck or two more...

I would use the AmWay LOC Metal cleaner on stainless guns only. They say the flitz is safe for blued guns also. Don't know. I can not tell any difference between rubed and unrubed parts of my Rugers via either products. thanks.

I've used Federal 300 grain castcore on the piggeys and it seems to work well too.
