Removing a Lead Doughnut in front of Chamber



Log in to see fewer ads
A friend of mine mentioned to me that after shooting many rounds in a rimfire a lead doughnut can form in front of the chamber. He told me that a company in the past made a brass reamer or ferrule you could go in an turn by hand to remove the lead doughnut.

Any of you aware of such a tool? I searched Brownells and could not find one.

I have a bore scope that I could use to look in my 41 barrels, but have not done it yet.

Any information you could pass along would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jeff

If you are referring to the carbon ring buildup located right before the rifling starts you may want to think about these products. They make quick work of if.

Thereís a lot of discussion about the ring that forms at the front of a 22 rimfire chamber being a conglomerate of carbon, lead, powder residue, et al.

Thereís solvents that can remove all these. Iíve been using PatchOut and the carbon remover from https://sharpshootr.com These are good products and are non-toxic.

They have a lead remover as well..

I like to soak with solvents before I try the mechanic/grinding methods.

Many a word has been typed about the carbon ring and how to remove it, one active inthe CZ threads. AS far as a tool, look up DrGunner's tools he sells it cheap or youcan make your own.

Chemicals look up BoreTech and Montana Extreme for a specific carbon killer, as 22's only suffer from carbon and lead. I have found anything that breaks carbon does a good job no matter if it comes from the LGS or the auto parts store.

Kissofdeath,

Where do you get pads from? I already have JB and a Dewey rod but need to get the Dewey adapter.

Thanks,
Jeff

I just use Hoppe's Solvent, a cleaning patch, a disposable implement softer than steel (e.g., a small piece of plastic or the tip of a small wood dowel), and elbow grease.
