I very rarely use lead to reload, however, with bullets so hard to come by I have been using some in 45. I ended up with some barrel leading at some point, and for the life of me couldn't get it out. People have their methods, but I was going to use the copper chore-boy strands wrapped around a worn brush method. Apparently the Chore-Boys aren't carried in stock in a lot of places because they are used in some fashion as a filter for smoking crack!

I ended up coming across a post, and ordered this:

It's copper pest control mesh and comes in a 20 foot roll for under $16 w/ free shipping. It came in and I wound a 2 in piece around an old 45 brush, gave it 4 or 5 scrubs, wet patch/dry patch.... clean as a whistle!

Just figured I'd toss it out there for anyone with leading woes... I figure 20 feet should last me years.
