So i acquired a new 1894 csbl in 357 mag, took it out to the range, it shot spot-on. Brought it home and did a fairly simple cleaning, lever off, bolt out, used Hoppes 9 Foam and then added some Hoppes Lube afterward. I wanted to work the loading gate a bit, so i loaded it up and left the last round halfway out for the night in my safe. Next day went to unload it and the rounds were all green from corrosion, even the ones deep into the tube had some. it was factory ammo, hadn't been handled aside from my loading it the night before. Could some hoppes have gotten into the tube and if so, caused this? I never considered getting into the tube and wiping it, anyone had this happen?
