    It's only on the top half of my barrel and they will not go away. Is this normal?

    Sorry, can't rightly tell what you are wanting to point to.

    AHA! I see you use slotted tip patch holders, not jag-tips! (reference to a different thread).

    OK, Derek, Let's try doing this: Identify from image below if the scratches are at Position"A" or at "Position "B"....

  7. You have to use a hi res cam or some thing. Find some one with a new Iphone4 or something and alot of light. Cause we cant see what you see.

    I really can't make out what you are talking about either...sorry !

    Are you referencing the outside circumference of the barrel...

    and NOT the inside of the barrel, where the lands and grooves are.

    Exactly why I put labels on his pic, and now just waiting for his reply.

    Powder burn or jacket separation/flaking if at Position-A?

    Needs to use a full jag or boresnake if at Position-B?

    Have you tried using a full jag tip on your cleaning rod? (sheesh, that almost sounds bad!)

    Noticed in the backgroud of your pic you are using a slotted tip.

    Then, I think, a clearer picture is called for.

    A full jag tip would've forced the cleaning patch against the mystery marks.

    I know its repetitive, but did you use cleaning solvent and a brush before you wiped using a jag tip?
