Damage to rifling due to cleaning (revolver)

I was doing a full cleaning of a Speed Six that I bought used and when I got a good amount of crud out of the barrel, I could see straight lines down the length of the barrel as if from a brush. I have shot this gun and it is very accurate. I was just wondering if anyone had pictures of damaged rifling from cleaning so I can compare it. The gun was made in 81 of march and shoots well so i'm not worried about it but just want to know what it is.

Brass brush or stainless?

Neither will really "damage" but stainless brushes have been known to scratch a little.

Some of those wheelguns have beautifully finished cylinders that I have seen scratched up due to using non-brass brushes.

As far as the bore I don't know. I only use brass brushes too (or Nylon). Unless somehow they messed up the crown of the barrel which is quite impossible cleaning it I don't think that a few scratches are going to mess up anything.

For the next few range sessions shoot a few hundred rounds of FMJ and it might just buff out.

All Ruger barrels look like that. It's from the rifling being cut.

I should probably be more specific. All of my Ruger 357's have it. They are all from the 80's and 90's and it's possible that Ruger changed the way they do their rifling on newer guns like an Alaskan. The bores basically look like they have a brushed finish to them.

If you screw up a Ruger, you've really done some thing wrong.

I have seen a S&W 686 that someone has cleaned the rifling right out of the crown on the bottom by using a segmented steel rod for years.

I should be more specific? A Speed Six is pretty specific, thanks for commentary!
