What are people using for copper fouling?
« on: August 10, 2017, 08:47:51 PM »
I've been using Hopps copper solvent but am wondering what everyone else is using? Found something better?

Once the barrel is broken in I never pull the copper out.  Any of the ammonia based cleaners work well if you follow the directions.

I stopped using those hard core solvents years ago and have had great success with M-pro7 products.
