If you want to save some work and happen to have any foaming bore cleaner, apply it liberally, let it sit and reapply and several hours and leave it for a couple days, it will attack the alloys in the lead and break it down so the fouling can be pushed out with a patch. I had a badly fouled bore on my TC Black Diamond Super XR .45 from shooting all lead Powerbelts and T7, tried several bore cleaners but it was still badly fouled, read about Wipeout working on lead fouling, and tried it, worked like a charm after the third day as I recollect, the patch pushed a whole bunch of lead flakes out like it was just laying in there.
