    I was dissapointed to see the results of the Breakfree CLP. I'll have to try the WD-40 Specialist for rust prevention. One lubricant that was left out that I use and love is Lucas Gun Oil. Its a synthetic that can be found at most auto parts stores. Really slick stuff.

    Looks like an excellent study! I think I am sold on One Shot for all non-BP uses. I would caution people about Frog Lube: While it seems to have all of the properties one would want and it's even BP compatible, I found out the hard way that it will harden into a wax-like substance that ruined my day. I have been using Ballistol on flintlocks for at least 20 years and when I started shooting C&B a couple of years ago, I would snap caps before loading my gear for a match and never had a problem with ignition. I tried Frog Lube on an evil black rifle and it seemed to work great. I figured I'd try it with my Navy's, so I cleaned up after a match, lubed them with Frog Lube, put them away in the safe and then the evening before the next match, I snapped caps like normal to be sure they were clear and packed up for the match. When my turn came at stage one, I had 3 misfires with one gun and four with the other. It was embarrassing as all get out and I learned a valuable lesson about physically clearing the vents and not simply trusting snapping caps to do the job. However, what's relevant here is that when I pushed the Frog Lube out of the vents, it had formed a hard wax that a Remington #10 couldn't push out. I'm not saying that it shouldn't be used; simply be aware of what it can do if it collects and hardens.

    Why am I not surprised to see mineral spirits as the main item. BTW: WD-40 And WD-40 Specialist, are not the same. OLG

    Hornady One Shot is my go to and has been for a full season. Despite what the reviewer says I find it hardly smells at all which is why I can use it in my basement and my wife doesn’t notice. It’s pretty remarkable stuff.

    I use WD-40 Specialist on the outside of my dies and exposed metal on all my reloading equipment to prevent flash rust when they are not being used for extended periods of time.

    Howdy OLG, I've been using it about 10+ years. It's used in shrink wrap for cars, bikes, boats....Also a lota stuff is treated with it for packaging parts, the Hornady powder drum is wrapped in what looks about like brown paper treated with it, I think it goes under the Cortex brand but it's the same stuff. Dies and shell plates come with a little 1"x1" cardboard piece in the box treated with it, no more need for camisol or heavy bearing grease on all kinds of parts. One other product that I really like for moving parts like base pins or 1911 slide is Gun Butter, not bore butter Watch Todd Jarret run 1000 rounds as fast as he can I was glad to see how well Ballistol did on this fellers tests, except the smell part he didn't like http://www.gunbutter.com/
