Cylinder deposits on SP101 .357

Anybody ever use Berryman B12 Chemtool Fuel treatment to clean the black despots from the front of the SP101 357 cylinder and chambers. Shooting 38's leaves a ring in the cylinders and this stuff cleans all of the deposits off. You can buy it at Walmart in either spray or liquid form. Does anyone know of a reason not to use it?

The best thing Ive ever used is a birchwood casey lead remover and polishing cloth. The burn deposits wipe away with little effort.

I will second this product. great for deposit removal on cylinder, inside frame, around barrel, even in barrel to help remove lead deposits. great product. one mall piece goes a long way.

What is the original purpose of the stuff? Do you know what is in it? How flammable or toxic or corrosive is the stuff? I may be somewhat traditional or lacking in curiosity but I typically use gun cleaners to clean my guns.

I'd say if you've tried it and no harm came to the finish and it does a good job I'd keep using it. Not sure whats in it but there are some fine cleaners out there derived from automotive chemicals, Ed's red comes to mind. I always meant to mix up a batch of it but never got around to it but there are those who swear by it. I've always suspected that Marvel Mystery Oil, another fuel/oil treatment, was nothing more than ATF with maybe a few other ingredients including some sort of mint or licorice scent added in.

I consider the carbon rings as a distinguished mark of a shooter
Any deposit is cleaned off the cylinder, but the rings stays...
