Seams like the search function on here doesn't like me lol. Always says no results found for some of my most basic questions. I guess I'll start a thread, thanks for the help

Did you search for specific words or enclose words in quotes?

Never used quotes. I simplified the searches as much as I could and either got no results or results that didn't match my search.

Caring for a chrome-lined barrel: Are these barrels cleaned by simply using solvents and cloth? I'm assuming that you wouldn't run a copper brush through it, is that correct? (I realize that this is probably an extremely ignorant question, but I'd rather now than assume).

Are solvents and cloth enough to thoroughly clean the bore?

Thanks

I use copper a few passes, and finish up with cloth. Last pass, a lightly oiled cloth to lightly coat the bore.

Interesting, thought the copper brush would scratch/damage the chrome.

Thanks again. Great thread, very educational.

I just made a precision build, so I need to research barrel care for it. But copper won't scratch chrome. Chrome is will scratch copper, as its harder. Also chrome lining is more for a service/duty type application so I'm not babying it.

My 416 SS barrel is another story.

Is there really a discernible difference in accuracy when firing .223 rounds from a 5.56 chambered barrel? Has anyone here experienced this?

Need a definitive answer on this. I hear all the old Colt SP1's are chambered in 5.56 even if they're marked .223 Rem on the lower receiver. Does anyone know if this is true for sure? Mine was made in '71.
