    I noticed my single barrel trap has a little ( very slight) amount of rust in the chamber area. It also causes the shell to not eject crisply. What is the best way to remove the rust or polish it per say

    Fine steel wool wrapped around a 10 gauge copper bore brush, and a drill. Run it back and forth with some light oil, like a brake hone.

    Steel wool wrapped around a bore mop soaked in something like CLP or Barricade works really well!

    I tried about everything and this is a tip that I was given by a friend. I bought a box of Chore Boy scrub pads made of copper. I cut one to fit and wrapped it around a 12 ga bore brush and inserted it into my cordless drill, then followed up with a chamber brush wrapped the same way ( the bore brush just doesnt get deep enough & I did not have an ext rod). Then I followed up with fine steel wool and the chamber is spanking new

    If I used plastic shells my BT99 the chamber almost rusted before your eyes.

    Federal papers, not so bad or not at all.

    I used a 10 ga. bore brush I bought at the Grand and some Rig between shoots, worked well.

    A 20 MM brush in a drill is ideal for a 12 Ga. chamber.

    Once you have it scrubbed clean, consider using a bore mop or at least a Fed. Paper shell, well oiled, when you put it away after shooting. Prevents a bit of rust. If you use Fed papers, consider painting the heads bright red to keep the safety guru's at bay.
