I have a Thompson Centerfire blackpowder, that I picked up cheap... but the barrel needs some help. What's the best for cleaning a rusty barrel?

 This is to old to help you but i did the same and cleaned the barrel with plenty of hot water and soap to get the Potassium salts out then used Hoppes number nine to get all the corrosion with a wire brush.  The gun had a 1-66 twist and shot patched round ball well when i was done. I gave $75 for it and gave it to my son he sold it for near $400 . There were no deep pits in the bore .
