I have a 'rust textured' bore rifle that shoots real sweet.



This gun does not copper foul at all. It doesn't do too well with cast or paper patched bullets though, being a two-groove. I cut off that end bit of the barrel after fire-lapping to ensure there was no 'trumpeting' of the bore.

Point is, it takes a lot of corrosion and etching to damage a barrel. Apparently, texturing a bore reduces friction and copper fouling. It does seem to hold lube better.

Be careful with the chemicals.

The stuff used to remove brass from lands and grooves may cause old nickel plated firearms to start "flaking".
Some will cause fires if not disposed of correctly.
Some will burn a person's body severely.

Now this isn't a perfect system,and it does take some time to set up and use.I let the sytem work for 30-45 minutes when I have tried it,and it seems to work alright,and it does take most of the copper,and all of the powder fouling out of the barrel.
Here is something else you might give a try when your are on the range. Get a one quart spray bottle from w-mart or the like. Put in 4 cups of plain household ammonia, 1 cup of Dawn dish soap. Cap it and mix it around good. After your done at the range while the barrel is warm, spray this into the bore. The ammonia acts as a neutralizer on the acids of the powder and a lifter. The dawn is very good at getting under what the ammonia loosened and begins to break it up as well a keep the barrel lubed against drying out. Run a brush through once or twice, then spray it again. let it set till you get home then give it a good going through. You should see less and less fouling build up. Good shooting!

I too, have used a home made cleaner as described with a slight variation. I used an old ac/dc charger from a cell phone or other gadet. It works great for me.

AS well, just saw great reviews on a "new" product called GUNZILLA which claims to be better than any other product on the market. They have a sister product called copperzilla for copper fouling. An internet search will turn up their URL. I certainly would love to hear from folks who have tried it.

I'm just having a mild brainstorm - how about using the system in reverse to apply a coating to the bore? I'm not thinking chrome or the like, just a lubricating type coating like perhaps tin? Maybe something better?
