If your going to re chamber I would try it anyway but you will need clean it bare and maybe Iosso may be the only thing that will touch it!! ALL the carbon needs to come out so soaking for a few days may help but all depends how baked on it is.Cap 1 end of your barrel, fill with hoppes to top of the muzzle and cap that end , stand upright in the corner for a week. Capping keeps the solvents from evaporating, this could help soften up the carbon. JB Red does work but only after you get most of the carbon out as its just not abrasive enough if carbon is baked on hard. Saums with 2209 are ANGRY hence require a more sturdy cleaning approach than typical calibres.
Mate, I'll definitely give that a crack. My normal cleaning regime is, after a cub shoot, Bore Tech Carbon Remover to remove the carbon then apply Eliminator. After about 150 rounds clean with KG2. When storied run Metho down the barrel then apply oil. Do the the later every month when not using.
I'm also not fussed about a re-chamber/crown, I don't think the cost vs the pay back will be in my favour. I'm very OK with a new barrel/s.
