Not really as the boiling water dissolved the acidic salts left from the primer's firing in the chamber and barrel. Normal cleaning procedures will not completely remove these salts properly and will rust the barrel if left in there.
If worried about scalding yourself all's that you have to do is get a small funnel and something like a rubber hose that fits in the barrel and pour the water into the funnel,regards
