KG-12 BORE CLEANER / COPPER REMOVER

TEST RESULTS FROM THE RIFLE STORE

 

This is a small test we carried out in the workshop.
At one time or another we have all heard the various stories about copper removers and what works best in particular barrels / rifles and so on.  
This is a test that was carried out in the work shop not your normal or standard cleaning test on rifles or barrels but on something with a bit more  copper than you would usually find.
Most solvents used on this test require you to brush the copper / fouling out of your barrel with effort & elbow grease normally for long periods of time.
For the people who are the skeptics amongst us, KG 12 does not require a lot of effort to work. KG 12 will etch / dissolve the Copper or Carbon problems out of your barrel when you use it correctly


KG-12 Copper Removal & Blue Patches 
This Is Mainly Due To A Chemical Reaction That happens When You Normally Mix Ammonia Based Products with Copper, The Ammonia Reacts With The Copper Inside Your Bore & Turns Blue - This Does Not Happen With KG Products
With KG 12 You Find The Copper Comes Out Dark Brown  / Golden Brown Colored
    
  
A Barnes .338 Cal Bullet 210 Grn XBT - Lot No 1019 - 12 / 10 / 1998 LF Was Used

1. For the test, each bullet was weighed 3 times to get an accurate weight in grains for the start.

2. Each bullet was then soaked in different copper solvents for 19 hours 

3. After 19 hours each was taken out dried carefully and weighed 3 times , results taken and returned to the solvent for a further 5 hours.

4. At the end of 24 hours each bullet was removed from the test solvents dried and carefully weighed again and the results listed 

 All tests were conducted as fairly as I could and the results reflect what happened under the test conditions.  You're mileage may vary.  If you don't like the results feel free to spend the time doing your own tests.  If you are the manufacturer of one of the products tested don't send me hate mail if you don't like the results.  Or, you could send me additional samples to test and report on.  As far as I know all the information presented above is correct and I have attempted to insure that it is. However, I am not responsible for any errors, omissions, or damages resulting from the use or misuse of this information, nor for your doing something stupid with it.
