does any one know a really good method of cleaning the cylinder when you have heavy deposits of crud from firing 38's in the magnum chamber.

There are many methods, (some risky for your gun).

The fastest, easiest, and safest, is to just buy a chamber cleaning brush from Brownell's.

Their chamber brushes are over-sized with extra-stiff bronze bristles.

To use, just push and turn the brush into the chamber, turn it a few times, then push it the rest of the way through.
Remove by pulling it back out, and in most cases, ALL bullet fouling is gone.

Although Brownell's sell stainless brushes, DO NOT use these, since they can damage the gun.
The stainless brushes are for gunsmiths use on guns so badly neglected, you have nothing to loose.

As above, there are other methods, from using larger caliber bore brushes, twisting Chore Boy over a bore brush, to using a Lewis Lead Remover.

However, as said, the special chamber brushes work faster and better than anything else I ever found.

Brownell's sell these in one or three packs.
