I love Pro Gold grease, very slippery, stays where you put it, but it says right on the label that it's only good down to 0F.

If you want a grease for real cold, try Super Lube. It's rated down to -45F. If it gets colder than that, I'm going inside.

I got up to my knees and I was eye to eye with a buck. I slowly raised my shotgun and got off a lethal shot. Snow flew out of the receiver of my Mossberg 500 like a blizzard. I did take a nice eight point and a new found respect for the Mossberg 500 that was already my favorite gun. At the time I was using Remoil. It was 11 degrees when I left the house that morning.

Incidents like this is why Alaska state troopers close the dust cover on their AR15.

We used to do a lot of quail hunting,when the temps dropped the only thing we found to keep our semi auto shotguns cycling was dry graphite.

Fluid Film is made for below zero. I called them and they sent a 4oz aerosol as a sample. They sell it a Tractor Supply now.
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.
