    Looking for some ideas on removing leading from chamber in 1911. I used SC lead remover and removed all from barrel but still have lead in chamber. Any good ideas? Been shooting Magnus lead swc 200 grain pushed with 6 grains of Universal Clays. Thanks.

    Use some of the lead removal patches wrapped around a bore brush put a dry patch under if its not tight enough.

    Back off the charge weight some will help the leading problem.

    I switched to berry plated bullets worth it to me for a vew dollars not to have to deal with leading and breathing in vaporized lead.

    Jon is taking the gentleman's approach. I use the redneck system. 50 cal bore brush, drill, Hoppes. Spin for 30 seconds, mop clean.
