I like to use "Eliminator" since it does not smell so strong. I use the "Special Line" Dewey brushes from Brownells, since they fit on my "Dewey" Rod. I shoot 45 caliber mostly so I got a 50 caliber brush from Cabelas for the chamber only.
I do use Tetra for when I shoot copper jacketed bullets. And or, Butches Bore Shine, is another good one.
I have not had to do this in a long time since I have not experienced any leading. But when I did,, I used a "choreBoy" copper scour pad, cut a small piece and wrapped and old brush to scour out the lead.
I do hunt west Tx some and it gets very dusty. SO I use a small paint brush to remove dust from the gun. then clean barrel and cylinder. The I lube the ratchet and base pin on Single actions. and Lube accordingly on the others. I use "Shooters Choice" red lube in a tube.
Good quality lightweight oil where needed.
But if I am going to a range session only,, I have been known to use a small amount of "Never Seize" It will withstand heat and beatings of the Big Bores. And resist wear on slides.
Collectors is a good oil to use for long term storage. I never tried any wax such as the Renaissance Wax.
