Chamber Leading

What is the best way to clean the lead out of the chamber. The 1894 357 chamber will not let a 357 length cartridge seat. I have used the copper scrub pad on the cleaning rod, and this removed some, but not all. I have not broken the gun down and tried form the chamber end, which is probably the best. I know this has been done many times, so someone has the answer, no cense in reinventing the wheel.

Re: Chamber Leading

I forced the spent 357 caseing into the chamber, seemed to work. I will break the gun down and finish cleaning the chamber from the receiver end.
Thanks

If all else fails, use a "Lewis Lead Remover", available from Midway Brownells, Missouri Bullet supply, and others.

Re: Chamber Leading

XB40, I don't know if you reload, but what I do is to light load 357 ammo which takes care of the problem before it starts. I don't bother with 38 Special ammo. If you don't reload, Cowboy Action Shooting ammo in 357 works well for light loads too.

Just curious, XB40 = B-17 variant?
