Thanks for all the suggestions. Removing the barrel was the first thing I did when this first happened. To answer M1911's question, the wire's on the bore snake are brass.

I have been keeping it loaded with CLP and hope to visit my friend today. Once I get the bore snake out any suggestions on the best way to get the lead out? I heard that 50 percent white vinegar and 50 percent hyd. peroxide was good,,,

I wound insert a section of brass or aluminum cleaning rod in the muzzle or chamber end. Which ever one seemed to allow the end to fully press the entire contraption forward, support the barrel in a vise with protection and tap it through with a light hammer, lead and all. M1911

Don't do that. The gun has suffered enough already.

I got this from some oldtimers that shoot a lot of lead reloads through their Marlin rifles...block the ends of the barrel, "fill" or at least liberally coat with Kroil, let it sit, run a clump of SOLID copper Chore Boy through the bore a few times, repeat as necessary. Finish up with J-B Bore Compound and a light lube with your choice of oil. A Lewis Lead Remover kit would work in place of the Chore Boy but it's not available for .22, only .30 and up.

Yes! It's out. I've been soaking it in CLP and I just grabed the end with needle nose plyers and it pulled right out. Now I am soaking it real good with CLP and then I will do some scrubbing with a brass brush and hopefully get that lead out.

Thanks again everyone for the comments, even the 'funny' ones!

Me, too; I was starting to get ... (dare I say it?) ... bored with the whole thing. Still, let's Stick this thread, in the event that someone else comes along with the same issue.

You will need to sacrifice a .22 Cal cleaning rod.

On a solid surface, like a concrete floor, pad the muzzle with a piece of 1/2" plywood, take a section of .22LR aluminum cleaning rod and a big ball pein hammer, and drive the cleaning rod towards the muzzle.

It will come out.

Do not do this again.

It is embarrassing.
