I just had to unwrap one of the two barrels I purchased after reading reports of rust. This is what I found.

...now you have me wondering if I should unwrap, clean and inspect all of my barrels.

I did and got a surprise.

Just use a 1/2 gallon of boiling water,...pour it over the barrel and let it sit for about 2 minutes....and just wipe it off.

The barrel stays hot for a long time.

I will inspect all of them this week and I will try the hot water method or just warm them up a little with the heat gun and wipe off the cosmoline. The one barrel I already inspected was fine and gauged ME of .5 and TE of 1.

OH yeah,....Rubber Gloves are a must. Thin medical type,...I use blue ones.

I washed my hands when I first took them out and Dawn soap wouldnt dissolve the residue,...so much for Like-dissolves-Like.
