I favor the Lewis lead remover kit method previously mentioned along with a lead remover solvent. In the past, I've even used the end of a straightened section of a large paper clip to scrape the lead out from the firing chambers of my .45 Colt clone. IME, paper clip material tends to be softer than gun steel yet harder than bullet lead. I only clean this way when I have no other choice because the end of a paper clip will only scrape off lead if sharp and needless to say, it's very time consuming. I used to keep a small sharpening stone handy to resharpen the end of the paper clip when it got dull. This works but the Lewis lead remover is much easier to use.
