Copper pot scrubbers, available at the grocery store. Cut a small strip of the scrubber and wrap it around a bristle brush. The sharp edges of copper take out lead easily but don't harm the bore.

Sweets for lead? I know it is a great chemical action copper remover, but I never tried it on lead.

What does the lead look like when using just sweats and a patch?

Try chore boy for $2 and see if it works for you before buying the lewis lead removal which cost $25 plus shipping. Cut a piece and wrap it around a brush.

When I was shooting revolvers with lead bullets a lot, this worked best for me. I combined them with a chemical lead remover from wally world I think, and it worked reasonably well. Much better than stianless steel brushes, tornado brushes, and everything else I tried.

Strands of the copper pad wrapped around a tight fitting PATCH works better than the brush, in my opinion.
