cleaning shotgun.

i ran a hoppes soaked patch down the rifled barrel of my 870 after shooting 15 rounds through it and the patch was clean when it came out. not a single spot of black on the patch. just wondering if this is odd or is it because the slugs are saboted. any insight on this?

Re: cleaning shotgun.

I think a lot may depend on the type of powder that was burned. Some shotgun powders (Amarica Select for example) burn very clean and others (Clays) leave a lot of burned stuff behind.

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