I have a shotgun barrel that was clean and shinny before shooting deer slugs through it. Now it has a gray frost in side of it,im asuming it is lead. I tried some of the gun solvents but didnt phase it. Any help would be apreciated. UncleTom

Personally...Leaded shotgun bores do not bother me in the least...It is not like a rifle bore used for match shooting or long distance hunting where you need MOA accuracy...

That said...

Here is a thread from with some of the best advice about cleaning bores...Pay special attention to the part about the drill with the 0000 steel wool wrapped on a brass brush...You will have a mirror bore in seconds...

I use lead away cloth to remove lead deposits. Just cut a peice from the cloth and put it over your bore brush and scrub away it will do a great job

'Shooters Choice' is about the best bore cleaner I've found.

When shooting wad-cutters in a pistol I'll use a Lewis Lead Remover Cleaning Kit, It uses about a 100 mesh brass screen in place of a cloth patch.
Most hardware stores will usually carry the brass screen.
