Default Boiling water?

Having Shot allot of B/P.. It's my newest obsession after Garands..
I don't agree that you need or want to use "boiling hot" water.
Whether the water is hot or not, seems to me to be a non-issue.
Water is water, unless it is steam or Ice.
Boiling hot water causes "flash rusting"
Having seen it many times in my B/P weapons... now I just use cold water and a small amount of Ammonia.
Just like the author states.
I guess this is why the Russians always "chromed" their barrels.
