cosmoline or after shooting?
After shooting many people get very hot water(boiling?) and pour it down the barrel, Chamber first, The hot water dries faster and loosens the corrosive salts easier, Dry, Lightly oil, It may not hurt to run a brush through the bore as well.
Cosmoline, That can be a pain, My rifle didnt have much on it, But the bolt needed some help there, I took it apart and had my oven set to 175 heated it up turned it off and put the parts in on a plate with cloth.
There are all sorts of ideas about removing cosmoline, Try a google search and see what you like the best.
