    Help please

    I just purchased a Remington 700 from a gun show. It looked great there I thought that the bore looked clean bolt had hardly any slop not beat up at all.

    I got it home and I took the bolt out and held the receiver to some good light, I looked down the barrel the rifling is barely visible do to copper fouling.

    I ran a brush though it with some solvent, a least a hundred times, still not good.

    Anybody have to deal with this? What to do?

    Are you using a generic cleaning solvent, or one purpose made as a copper solvent?

    Try one of the foaming cleaners. Squirt it down the bore and let it dissolve and drain out. I use Gunslicks brand a lot but there are other brands.
    Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

    Shooters choice copper solvent = Done!
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
