What product are you using on the patch?
I have some Parker Hale 009 that I was advised to use by my local armoury. It smells bad (so keep it out of the kitchen) but seems to work well. Best to let it soak for longer.


It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I use Shooters Choice Copper Remover.  15min first and a good 20 thereafter.  Also an oversized bore brush.  The .38 pistol brush helps with periodic use.  Still a job though.
I keep the barrel on a downward angle too.
