Dead easy- buy yourself 2 .30 caliber "mop" cleaning brushes. Pull the bolt out, soak one mop in soapy, hot water and run it through the bore 5 times. Rinse and repeat for 2-3 cycles. Use the other mop to dry the bore. Then switch to regular cleaning equipment- bronze brush, bore cleaner, patches, etc. Last off, make sure to oil it before you put it away.
BTW- you can use a heat gun to melt the inevitable cosmoline and then use brake cleaner to take off the remains. Just avoid getting the stock too wet with brake cleaner- it will melt the varnish.
