The lead build-up in the chamber can be cleaned out with no damage. The situation with Airedale's gun was that the sides of the chamber erroded from the hot gases (similar to throat erosion on centerfires). When LR was then fired in it the case bulged out into the rings and wouldn't extract. It must have takent a LOT of Shorts to cause that.
