Hobbles how do you clean your barrel? Hot soapy water?

Mornin Walt,
Yep, I'll pull the nipple, stick the barrel in the bucket of hot soapy water and with a patch on the ram rod I pull the wet patch up and it'll suck the hot water up the barrel, push the ram rod back down and flush the black out. Do that a few times, let it set 2 0r 3 minutes and do it again till the black stops coming out. When done I run a patch with my patch lube down it. then a clean patch. It takes a while to get a clean patch.
**I just found out that after the water, soak a patch with WD40 and run it up and down a few times, then a clean patch. WD 40 cleans up a barrel pretty darn fast. then use your patch lube in the barrel.**
Then I wipe the barrel and stock with saddle soap, then the brass with Brasso. Clean and lube the threads on the nipple.

Thank you hobbles... what do you use for lube?

I have only shot minne balls out of mine so far and have been using a light coat of Crisco for lube. I now have a round ball mold and will be trying the ball and patch method

A lot of people do not like WD40 but I think its good stuff as long as you realize its limitations.

As for the WD 40's limitations, I use it to clean, nothing else. I blow or use a patch to get all the WD 40 out/off the weapons, then oil them like normal. It does clean the black off of everything.

As for patch. I have tried a lot of stuff but like and use 25% Bore butter and 75% Goop, (***THE CREAM,, NOT PUMICE***). I also add food color to it so I can find my patches easier, color depending on if it's winter or summer.
I use .018 pillow ticking patch's. My weapon just likes the thicker patch, they won't blow through and I only use 74 grains of powder.
