Ok I have this bolt action but I can't seem to get a leverage on this space about 5 inches from the nearest opening. Do you think bore foam would disolve the carbon build-up?

I use foaming cleaners regularly in addition to normal cleaning methods. I think they work quite well and certainly worth a try. I use Wipe Out, which has had very good reviews by others. Sportman's Warehouse carries it for $10 a can. Messy, but the product works. You can leave it in overnight for a really good cleaning. Just make sure you oil any metal the product works on.

You should pic up a sent of dental picks at CTD for like $14. I just ordered my second set since I'm pretty hard on them when I'm cleaning the nooks and crannies out.

FYI, Foaming bore cleaners don't dissolve carbon. They turn it into something resembling ceramic. Try MPro7 to cut carbon. After you clean with foam and are sure the barrel is clean, give it a healthy scrubbing with a brass brush and good old Hoppes #9. Run a patch through, you might be surprised. After using foam for a year I thought two barrels were shot out, they came back after removing the carbon build up from the throats.

Now that is good to know

    This is the closest gun close to my house and they have always been super nice. I have bought two guns off them and sold one of mine to them.
