Plastic Fouling

I just purchased a new CVA Accura MR 50 Cal. inline muzzleloader. I have used Powerbelts and Blackhorn Powder in my Traditions Deerstalker I recently gave to my son so we can hunt together. I would like to try a different bullet ( for the heck of it ) in my new muzzleloader. I would like to try Barnes bullets. My questions is... is it difficult to clean the plastic fouling? Would ballistol or other CVA branded cleaners that I have work to clean the plastic fouling? Thanks in advance. Triple B

Just do a search for removing plastic fouling in shotgun barrels. If you keep it off the finish choke and carb cleaner works about as good as anything.

I use the CVA barrel blaster cleaner on my inlines. Thought it was all a gimmick until I tried a can that came with a cleaning kit I received as a gift.
Stuff works... and makes cleaning way too easy. Foam the bore, drink a beer or two, come back, push a pair of clean patches thru and the bore looks NIB.

Sweets 7.62.
Use that stuff and follow the directions. It will liquefy the plastic, dissolve any copper / brass or lead fouling.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
