Default Eric Corrina got me thinking

He uses CLR to clean his rifles with. Removes Carbon.

I just recently acquired an inline muzzleloader. Muzzleloader have carbon.....

Has anyone tried CLR to clean their muzzleloader?

I wouldn't use it on a blued gun. Stainless might work good. I personally use ammonia. Just have to rinse good with hot water and oil before putting it up.

CLR will take the bluing off of a carbon steel barrel.

Hot water and Dawn followed by Bore Butter while the barrel is still warm. It will season the barrel like you season a cast iron skillet. You’re welcome.

I have heard, CLR will take bluing off, don't want to find out the hard way.

I have used on my stainless barrel before. Once done I run water down the barrel to rinse out and a couple patches of oil. I only use it when needed in drastic situations like a carbon ring
