Glad to hear it`s a shooter after all. If you have problems again run some copper soulvent through it. I usually use Sweets 7.62, but anything with ammonia in it will work. You might run some through to see if it is fouling. Keep running them through untill you get no more blue.

That is what I did. I gently tapped a wood dowel in the chamber to seal it and filled the barrel with shooter's choice copper out and let it work for about a week. Then I gave the barrel a good scrubbing with a bronze brush and kept repeating the scrubbing until the blue color came clean. It worked like a charm. It is about the best shooter I have now.
