Thanks in advance.

Most guys have moved to Boretech non-smell products.  Eliminator cleans carbon and copper. I prefer their C4 for carbon then just a lite use of their copper remover.  I like to leave some copper there but no carbon.  Google Boretech Eliminator. 

And throw out the nylon brushes just use brass.

I donít know if I do it wrong or all of my guns are ďfoulersĒ but I seem to spend half the day pushing patches through unless I use something like kg-12. The only thing thatís come close in effectiveness is Montana extreme 50bmg copper solvent, but man, one whiff of that stuff and Iíll be smelling ammonia for days.
you can still get gas in heaven, and a drink in kingdom come,
in the meantime, i'll be cleaning my gun

I have used Lee Shavers barrel break in method and had very good results and very little copper or leading problems. Hope this link works. https://www.modernmuzzleloader.com/threads/lee-shaver%E2%80%99s-barrel-break-in.33040/

I clean every 100 rounds. This barrel has around 450 rounds down the pipe.
