    I recently started shooting lead out of my M&P cleaning the lead is a pain, talked to a guy who recommended Hoppes tornado brush. If you don't have one, get one. It's amazing, would work great for jacketed rounds as well. I ordered two from bi-mart for $6 they are in there catalog because it is not an in stock item.

    You can also use some Char Boy over a brush. Another option is a lewis lead remover. These two will get that last bit of lead out of the grooves. A tornado brush does a good job but is incapable of getting all of the lead out.
