Slug gun cleaning, need some help please

I have a Mossburg 835 with a Hastings Catelever Barrel. The first year it shot awesome. Last year it was shooting all over the place. I looked down Barrel with flashlight and noticed the rifleling in the Barrel is packed with wad plastic. Might as well shoot a smoothbore. How in the world do I get the plastic out of the rifling in the Barrel. Would like to use it if I don't tag out with my bow.. someone told me that there is a solvent I can use. Any help would be great. Thanks for reading.... Stufffer

Carb cleaner, brake kleen, or buy the gun specific equivalent. ( All really the same) Soak the inside of the barrel and brush it out. You could also wrap some 0000 steel wool around the brush if it's severe.

i use Gun Scrubber. remove the barrel from the gun, spray this down the barrel, its a foaming bore cleaner.

it foams up and comes out both ends of the barrel, let it soak for an hour (?) then clean the gun.

never had to use it on something like you say, but i usually do it once every few seasons just to do it.
