The best way I have found to remove the copper fowling is to use a good copper solvent. Using a bore brush, soak the barrel with 3 or 4 strokes and then let it sit and let the solvent do the work. I will usually let it sit for about 10 minutes, then finish cleaning with patches. If you still have copper fowling, repeat the process. It will come clean. New barrels are usually harder to get clean than "seasoned" barrels. Be patient............

I use Sweets 7.62 to remove copper. Another product that works great to remove carbon and lead fouling in a revolver is Outers Lead Removing cloth. Cut into patch size and use on a cleaning rod to make the bore shine. It is also the best way to remove the tell tale carbon rings that form on the face of your revolvers cylinder and the associated buildup on the forcing cone and crane.
