After I got it clear I soaked the last (uncut) rod I used and wiped the last of the flux off of it, got it all shiny and clean and pushed 25-30 patches through, at least 15 of them were Goo Gone'd. The flux seemed to chip and flake with even the slightest impact so I'm hoping it didn't damage the barrel, I didn't see any obvious damage looking through after I cleaned it but I'd imagine it's hard to see anything but major damage down there.

Should I still run some water (and maybe dish soap?) through the barrel followed by more Goo Gone and clean patches? Since I'm pretty sure some of the flux dust went back into the piston area (I realized too late that I should've put tape over it) is there anything I can do to clean out that area?

I would use water, or rather water-wet patches, then 2 dry patches and then shoot it to find out if there is was damage done. Probably not.

I ran a few water-wet patches through, it's still pulling out fair amounts of what looks like brown-black grease when I run them through. I shot it short range into some plywood in the garage, it seemed to fire fine but holy crap was that loud in such a small space.

What's it like now that you've cleaned it and shot it?
