Hate to hijack the thread, but if I am having trouble getting a 223 patch on a 223 jag through a 223 right at the start of the barrel, am I experiencing the dreaded carbon ring?

I think my 223 patches are 1" or 1 1/8", I know I can't get 1 1/4" through.

Punch the patch way off center, this will help a lot. No way of knowing if you have a carbon ring without a bore scope.

Carbon will get so hard that it will not leave any black or grey on a patch.

hm, I tried canned air (have some right on work bench). All it
did was move the lint, but did not dislodge it. I'm pretty
hesitant to use the air compressor, though.

Just checked mine and the lint did not seem to be there. I don't think I'd use compressor either as I'd be afraid of a trace of oil in the air???

Got the bore scope today - not happy with what I'm seeing .
Remington 700 vsf 220 swift- 11 shots thur it cleaned after each for the first 5 shots - wanted to get before and after pictures of the next cleaning . one pic. looks like a scratch . I used a bore snake to clean it after the first 5 shots .

The 11 shots were great ! If it will keep it up for a few hundred I'll be happy . guess I shouldn't expect too much from a factory barrel -

Pdhunter, you have some copper building up, faint powder fouling.

Throw the bore snake away.

PD, Get some JB Bore paste and work the barrel real good"till your arms want to fall off" and it will make the barrel clean a lot easier,with less fouling.

Good idea, I've been trimming some of the bigger ones down.

Off center on the jag will be way easier.

Thanks

Pdhunter: That barrel looks way better than a number of Remington barrels I've seen.

That looks pretty good! Carbon gone, faint hint of copper. Now for some super groups!
