12 guage gun - What is the best method for removing plastic (wad) residue from cones, barrel, and chokes? I have been using a 10 guage bronze bore brush.

Brute force isn't necessary.

I use Shooter's Choice bore cleaner.

Other people like WD-40, Ed's Red, Hoppie's, etc.

The trick is to get the bore coated with a solvent, give it about 5 - 10 minutes to do it's chemistry thing and then use a cleaning patch to push the loosened fouling out. Continue with the patches until you get a clean one (or reasonably so) and you're done. Choke tubes sometimes require special attention, i.e., removal and separate soaking and scrubbing. But I only do that occasionally. Usually the procedure I described above is sufficient.

Thompson-Center makes a cleaner that removes sabot plastic and powder residue from the bores of black powder rifles. Works great on the wad leftovers in trap gun barrels.

I like Shooter's Choice Shotgun & Choke cleaner. It works better than Shooter's Choice bore cleaner and won't dissolve the copper out of your bronze bore brushes. It smalls lees bad, as well.

Soak the plastic in acetone. It is available at your local hardware store. It dissolves plastic in a short period of time. HMB

right after I've shot the last event of the day, I shoot a shot of Outers or Browning oil down the barrell(s) and then fog some on the outside and put the gun(s) away in thier case....then the next time they're taken out of thier case they are thoroughly swabbed out with my long fuzzy bore brush...I'll try soaking them and see what comes out!!

Shooter's Choice bore cleaner & a 12ga. chamber brush will do the trick real quick. Chamber brush is stiffer & tougher than a bore brush. Use electric drill to do this. Works great.
