Default Bore cleaner?

When I clean my glock I use ballistol and the brush that glock gave me, but I can still see things on the inside of the barrel. (I think it's called fouling?) can anyone recommend what I should use to get the shiny surface on the inside of my barrel back?

I was thinking this http://www.midwayusa.com/product/459331/hoppes-viper-boresnake-bore-cleaner-pistol-44-45-caliber?cm_vc=OBv1387066

A boresnake is more of a quick clean for the range. Try a new brush with hoppes, or Kroil. There are a multitude of copper solvents on the market, most should work with time and elbow grease. When clean, I like to use butchs bore shine, which I think helps to prevent fouling.

I find foulings possible no matter what solvent is used when firearm extensively used the previous day is now cleaned the day or two after. However, when cleaning the same day no such fouling appears. I guess if you wait, you pay.

Like a metallic brush maybe?

It was about 10 hours between time of use and cleaning.

A boresnake is something one does instead of actually cleaning the gun.
If you can't find an answer here, never mind:
