Carbon fowling

Has anyone heard of a barrel carbon fowling?

I know I read an article the other day about carbon fowling and how to clean the barrel with some auto carbon treatment additives but I can't find the article now and am wondering if I just dreamed the whole thing up or what. Has anyone else read something like this recently? If someone has please tell me where to find out more information on this subject. I need all the help I can get with my shooting.

Thanks,

Kcajeel

I think if you scroll through this thread https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...ht=carbon+ring you might find what your looking for. Otherwise search on carbon ring.

My non-expert, but based-on-experience opinion is that carbon fouling is of little or no concern with .22 rimfire rifle barrels that are regularly cleaned.

With the exception of one, all of my .22 rifles were bought new, but the newest one is more than twenty years old. I just glanced at a couple of bores with a Hawkeye bore scope, one on a Ruger 77/22 stainless and another on a Browning takedown semi-auto. Both guns have been used considerably over many years with a variety of ammo, but I have no idea how many rounds have been fired through either gun.

The Ruger showed what appeared to be the start of a carbon ring but no carbon fouling in the grooves, the location where such fouling really becomes noticeable. The Browning showed what may be very faint carbon fouling in the grooves, but no indication of a carbon ring. Again, this is after years of shooting. I do brush all my .22 rimfire bores with a bronze brush, but maybe only every few years and not with regular, routine cleaning which consists of a couple of Hoppe's #9-soaked cotton patches followed by a couple of dry patches.

My experience with centerfire bores has shown carbon fouling and carbon rings to be a regular occurrence that can considerably degrade accuracy, maybe even cause dangerously high pressure in a seriously neglected bore. A brush and JB paste is the best way to deal with this. Liquid carbon solvents aren't very effective unless the fouling is minimal.

Instead of causing a bruhaha about cleaning, there is a PDF about cleaning rimfire guns written by someone who knows the subject very well. It can be downloaded and saved for future reference. This is a great place to start. Many pics, too! I'll just refer you to this:
