    I know where it goes.

    It's the blue liquid that's dripping out of the barrel. The bbl is not absorbing the copper from the brush.
    The brush gets oxidized from the cleaner. Do some research. Brushing a bore is not a bad thing.

    So many false statements

    who knows in the world of lead and 22 rf,
    but in the rest of the world..it is counter productive.
    we all know bronze brushes wear out, get smaller in dia.
    WHERE DO YOU THINK THAT MATERIAL GOES ?
    i quit using bronze as a normal cleaning brush maybe 15 years ago.
    i use chemicals, patches, mops, and most recently wipeout with accelerator.
    If you choose to not use a bronze brush, so be it. You should not make up things that are flat out false.

    sorry for your errors
    but if you rub bronze on ss or steel,
    the bronze will wear,it is abraded on/into the surface of the bbl..then
    you have to remove it.
    it does not fall out on its own.
    just like shooting a copper jacketed bullet, the copper on/in the bbl does not fall out
    on its own.
    simple mechanics. if you cannot figure it out. to bad
    done.

    The bristles lay down from use, the chemicals used deteriorates and breaks down the bronze. The hand speed in which you brush a barrel will not abrade the bronze into the barrel.

    Itís nothing like shooting a copper jacketed bullet at 50,000+ psi along with 5,000 degrees of burning fuel behind it.

    One thing you are correct about is it is simple!

    Agreed...on both counts.

    I have never seen evidence of "brush fouling" in any of my barrels following the use of a brush in the cleaning process. And yes...I have a borescope.

    What I have seen is that the use of a bronze brush with a good solvent is far more effective at removing copper fouling from a bore than just a patch and solvent alone.

    Me too.
    It has never been proven to me that a bronze brush, softer than stainless, will wreak havoc on a stainless steel barrel.
