I think some fear the brass brush for what it can do to breech sealing orings.  Yes bbl. steel is hard but heres a thought for you aluminum cleaning rod users.  Like many metals raw aluminum when exposed to the atmosphere will oxidize over time forming a thin layer of aluminum oxide (grinding wheel) of the surface of the cleaning rod.  Then the intrepid air gunner rams that oxide coated rod down his bbl.  If you really want to screw up a bbl. use that rod cleaning from the muzzle.
