Do you choose to use that little brass crown protector that comes with many of the better gun cleaning kits, when you clean the barrel of your revolvers? Or do you just try to be careful and use a coated rod to scrub the barrel clean.

You can damage the barrel with a steel rod and effect the long range accuracy of the revolver over time, if you are rough on the gun.

Use lead reloads and you might find yourself scrubbing the living heck out of the forcing cone to get the lead our, so to speak. Its a lot of work and you are rubbing that crown like a mad man/woman if you don't protect it.

Your thoughts folks?

I use soft rods to clean my revolvers and I have worked my loads up to where I have very little leading in the barrel. A little soak with Shooters Choice and some Choir Boy takes it right out. Most of the time I shoot about 100rds through my revolvers when I go to the range and it's not to bad of a clean up.

I clean a lot of revolvers. I always use crown protectors.
