The bottle brush is certainly better than the three stone deal, but it still can't reach all the way in. I can't say how much of an issue it is but the seal is pressing very hard against the tube at that point so the last thing you want is it hitting a step there. The step is likely extremely small but why take a chance. The sandpaper setup reaches all the way, can be any grit you like, will fit any tube on any gun, and smaller ones can be made to do others things including the transfer port, and is super cheap to make. The one in the previous pix was some trash (tube and) maybe 50 cents in materials I already had. A wood dowel is what I usually use, so maybe $1-2?
Receiver tubes usually have tight spots around the aft end/trigger area, and a roll gets those very well and you can feel it while sanding so you know how much and where to do it. Stones and brushes have little to no feedback so not so easy to do, plus with the trigger slot there it's impossible to use stones and very hard on brushes. Receivers don't need to have the tight spot opened up, but if you use buttons then you should imo. Some are so tight you can't fit buttons at all until they've been opened.
Barrels often have tight spots too so you can also use a small dowel/roll to both smooth the rough machining and open tight spots.
Not saying you have to do any of this, just fyi as an alternate idea that is imo better, and cheap enough that anyone can do. Few people have hones lying around, or are willing to buy them for this one task.
