I've had good luck with BoreTech Eliminator for copper fouling.

YES!

That is cool that you ordered it on the spot from the source.
I have been to their shop twice, and met Bob Baker. Good folks!

When I was thoroughly cleaning my granddad's Weatherby, I plugged the bore, filled it with Hoppe's Benchrest Copper Solvent cleaner, and left it to soak overnight. Worked like a charm.

As written above , Bore Tech Eliminator and they also market a stronger version for heavy copper build up. No strong odor and works as advertised from what I have found.

I have been using CR-10 to remove copper with good results. You just have to remember to follow up with a solvent like hoppes #9 after you get the copper out.
