No, copper should not damage rifling. Gotta realize alot of firearms calibers are copper jacketed or plated. With people put thousands of rounds thru barrels. Been so for 100s of years.

One copper wire down a barrel wont hurt nothing.


probably should have mentioned it was hardened copper wire, if that makes a difference.
or its just really stiff, compared to regular copper.


Still wont make a difference. Talking about that 14/2 ground wire?


it was a piece of a railroad signal wire. Probably around 12 awg

Yea no biggy. You can get a brass rod from a hardware store. 3/16 should do. In my range bag. I got a brass rod. Called a squib rod for 9mm. Even hammering a bullet out of a barrel. Does not damage anythjng.
