Is this normal for 800 rounds on a a standard 10/22 synthetic stock. No rough cleaning or anything like that. Thanks

Ammo? Remington Golden Bullets?

I'd take a lead removal cloth to it and I'm sure it will clean right up.

Be careful though, the cloth will take the blueing off as well.

Maybe some Hoppes would be a better choice if u don't want to chance the cloth.

Have you rubbed some off already?
That star pattern should be symmetrical and centered. Not off to one side like I see in the the picture.

If your powder/lead residue is off center then you need to redo the crown or it’s always going to throw fliers.



As for your question?
Build up at the crown is normal. That much I’m unsure of as I never have shoot 800 continuous without cleaning at least once.
I can’t go more than 3-500 anyway before I start having a sticky camber in most of my guns and I don’t hardly shoot anything with out a tight chamber.

Guess I need to take one of my Henry or 10/22 wmspeacial out and run a bunch of rounds through it.

Yes I have rubbed some off with some cleaning solvent before taking the pic, just didn’t rub too hard. Will the lead effect accuracy too much? It’s my rabbit/squirrel gun that I don’t take past 75 yards. I rather not ruin the crown by over cleaning.

That is a normal powder residue pattern from the blast of gas as the bullet leaves the barrel. The star is formed from the rifling and will clean easily with a little work. Wear in the muzzle usually comes from improper use of a cleaning rod and unless you are experiencing inaccuracy the bore is fine. These barrels last almost forever with a little proper cleaning. Other commenters have given good advice.

Oh I’ve ran a bore snake through it twice already, obviously the bore snake was not enough. What is the recommendation for cleaning the muzzle ? Thanks

This was yesterday at 75 yards with a red dot in standing position. I think based on this the accuracy is okay, in just not as great of a shot

Thank you!
It looked like some has been rubbed off that’s why I asked.

The right ride of the star isn’t the same, but if some has been cleaned off that would explain it. The thickest part looks centered.


I just use hops and a rag with a little elbo grease to remove that build up.

22 LR ammo is dirty ...unburned powder , carbon , lead is normally left in a gun ...
Clean and lubricate it after each shooting session ... letting gunk build up , bake on and harden just makes cleaning harder . Pay attention to bolt face and extractor ...don't let them crud up .
Clean and Lube ...Every Time

I had never seen what wasapparetly lead build upon the muzzle like that. It must have been from some hotter unplated bullets. I'll have to keep an eye out for this if it is caused by the 1750fps Aquilla and 1640fps Stinger ammo. Of course both bullets are plated..I have nevershot 800 rounds without cleaning either.
