to clean the chamber and bore:
If the ammo was non-corrosive, clean normally.
If corrosive, run boiling hot
soapy water through it, scrub it with a couple of patches or a bronze brush soaked in the hot
soapy water, then rinse with copious amounts of clear boiling
water. (I use at least a quart) Let it air dry, then run a patch soaked in alcohol though to get the last drops of water.
I'm very persnickety about cleaning after using corrosive ammo. OTOH, that may be why I've been able gto use literally tens of thousands of rounds of highly corrosive ammo over the years and never had a speck of rust!
