Default any cleaning ideas?

I have a Taurus Raging Bull .44 and after rubbing it enough with gun scrubber it will slowly come off but was wondering if anybody has a better way/idea to clean it faster thanks in advance!

I take it that your talking about cleaning the ported area on the barrel.
I use nylon and stainless steel brushes dipped in a solvent to clean mine.If you shoot a bunch,it takes a while to scrub it clean.

If you shoot any cast bullets,you will also get lead build up around the ports,I use a small metal pick to break the lead loose.

Get a small package of "Lead-Away" patches. Cut the end off of a QTip and wrap the patch around the end. The fouling will come off pretty quick, and it won't hurt the stainless at all.

Kroil oil, hands down, put some in a glass and stick the barrel in and let it sit.

That'll take care of the carbon fouling, as far as lead deposits, Txhillbilly nailed it. ^^^

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I'm sure glad there are some old school guys on this forum or I'd feel out of place here. Kano Kroil for the win!

Kleen-Bore Lead Away patches. I didnt believe they'd work all that well but even with year old caked on crud on revolvers it makes short work of it, no scrubbing or scrapping.
Got mine from MidwayUSA.
