The best way I have found to keep shells from sticking in a revolver, and to make them slide better in autoloaders is to first swab with a patch the inside of all chambers with Maa's or Flitz polish then next the run a tight dry patch thru them until clean, more than once if neccessary. This will smooth the chambers more each time and the shells will begin to come out much easier. For barrel leading, take either fine or extra fine steel wool tightly wrapped around a used bore brush or use a brush of a slightly smaller caliber bore, and push it tightly back and forth down the bore, even the cylinder chambers if required, and the lead will disappear quickly. The more lead the more brushing will be required. Steel wool is also great for cleaning all lead and powder residue from all areas of any firearm.
