    Ive been using TG, and N-320 at very lite loads to see what I like? My ? is that Ive noticed that my barrel is the dirtiest Ive ever seen also its after about 300 rounds or so. Its leaving a thick deposit of sut in the riffling and its very difficult to clean out makes cleaning abit of a pain now. What is causing this and does it have any ill affects on my accuracy while shooting ect? I know that lite loads are dirty but that dirty? Also I have a feeling that N-320 could be causing it and not the TG Ill find that out tomarrow. Thanks for the Help.

    I have never seen powder fouling that #9 wouldn't take right off. What solvent are you cleaning with?

    What kind of bullets are you loading?

    Tightgroup tends to be a little sooty when loaded light. I have never had a problem removing it from the barrel or gun. It wipes right off.

    +1 - a lil hoppes on a bore snake makes quick work of the barrel as well.

    I thought you could only use the Glock supplied bore brush? Does a bore snake or for that matter Brass borebrush hurt the barrel? It seems like it would work alot better.

    Im using Zeros and the Rem clean stuff.

    Ahh....

    Use a standard brass brush or a bore snake. No harm with either of those.

    Throw the glock brush away - or - I hang mine in the carpet on the inside of the gun safe. They make nice decorations. :)
