The metal brushes are typically brass, soft enough to not scratch the harder steel of the barrel/rifling - but I wouldn't want to send that through anything plastic, even with a cloth over it.

Thinking along these same lines though, we used to use what was essentially a handkerchief tied to a string to clean woodwind instruments ... that would probably be safer (and cheaper).
