If you are poor, like me, and can't afford all that

"20$ for 2oz, like it's your LUCKY DAY" crap, try

Automatic Transmission Fluid. A light coating

cleans while you sleep. @5$ A QUART.

Imagine, an affordable solvent which does the job

while allowing you to rest. It's also a great corrosion

inhibitor for semi actions. When you wipe it off during

cleaning, the soot comes right with it.

I like my balistal for my black powder . I use it 1 part balistal to 4parts water for my patches .
My rcbs ultadonic, ran about $150 but I think it was worth it with the the 1/2 hour timer and the heat settings . It has worked well for me

I don't think so, but you can order it directly off their website. Note, the large size can isn't a spray bottle. What I did was buy a large cheap spray bottle from Walmart and put the ballistol in it.

I got some CLP from Walmart. It did a great job, got most of the carbon.
