My barrel has what looks like "burn marks " on the inside. I only shoot FMJ, I used, Hoppes 9, Mpro 7, (not at the same time) a brush and good old fashioned elbow grease. The bore is clean except for those burn marks. A guy told me to use "Kleen Bore" Lead Away Cloth, cut into small 1/2 x 1/2 patches and run thru to remove the build up.
Are these marks lead? If so how when I only use FMJ. If it isn't lead WHAT IS IT? and why won't Mpro7 or Hoppes 9 remove it? Thanks In Advance, I have learned so much here re: The 1911..... and I started looking for my 2nd one yesterday (I guess I am hooked!!)

PS

If you get the Lead Away Cloth, make sure you don't get it on any bluing!

Those "burn marks" are carbon buildup. The lead-away cloth does a good job of removing this from stainless steel. I use it on stainless revolvers to clean the carbon from the cylinder mouths. Lead-away cloth also does a good job of removing blueing.

The Lead Away cloth works as advertised. It will remove a blue finish so be careful.

If it bleeds, you can kill it.

JB bore paste should work too, might be safer to use than the cloth
