Actually Dale, Kroil has been used for a while by American benchrest rifle shooters. Every time a bullet is fired in a high pressure and high temperature situation, the copper gilding bullet jacket material embeds itself on top of the layer of burnt powder residue. This all builds up after every shot and Kroil has been effective at removing it in large portions. Previously, reverse electrolysis would do it, but with an expensive set-up and different solution, one for lead and one for copper. And it required srubbing between layers and solutions. Kroil is a superior penetrant.
Not recommended around bearings!
