On a visit to one of my LGSs, the smith there recomended a CLP called Gunzilla. I had been out with the muzzleloader that day, and after 10 shots with Pyrodex it was filthy to say the least. He invited me to come into his back room so I could see the product in action. 5 lightly sprayed patches, and 3 dry patches later the barrel was bright and shiny. We then went out to the range behind his shop and fired 5 more shots. 4 patches later (2 wet, 2 dry) it was clean and shiny again. I wound up ordering a gallon of it, and it is what I have used for the last 4 years and what I will continue to use from now on.

Here is ther site:http://.www.gunzilla.us

Been using Breakfree CLP for years along with some Hoppes #9. Lithium grease where polymer meets steel. I bought a HiPoint to see if they were as bad as people say (some people need to get off their high horse), after 1300 rounds of .40 the wear is minimal with the grease and after a bad mag from the factory, which was replaced at no charge, no problems I didn't cause (not enough crimp on reloads).

Hoppy's #9 and Hoppy's weathering oil. My uncle always says Hoppy's #9 smells better than chanel #5. Im almost out of the oil so i might try my Dye Slick Lube. Its a paintball marker lubricant designed for high cyceling markers. So i think it will be fine on my Rem700.

I like M-Pro 7 for a cleaner, but for protectant and lube, we did some testing on a few.

Froglube I tested it in my ruger 10/22 because the amount of lead residue after shooting I go through at least a 1000 rounds anytime I shoot it and before I cleaned it, it had about 50,000 rounds in it and once it was taken apart it took me 10 minutes to wipe it down with a paper towel and its back to being clean so my opinion is Froglube

Gunslick graphite lube is unbelievable. When they say slick they ain't kidding. A tube of that stuff lasts for years, cause you use only a couple of drops. It makes everything move as smooth as glass. I've been using it for over 40 years.

Is gun slick graphite a dry lube?

No it isn't dry, rather it's like a dark graphite paste. Comes in a squeeze tube with a very narrow tip, cause a small amount goes a long way. I swear by this stuff.

FrogLube, Breakfree CLP and a touch of Birchwood Casey Barricade for rust protection.
Not necessarily in that order except the Barricade.
