What is the shelf life of Hoppes #9?
 
Like the title asks...I have a bottle of bulk #9 that I got back in the 90's, still smells the same (love that smell! :D) so I am guessing it is still good to go or is it?

Shelf life is 42.368 years. So yes yours is still OK.

I have a bottle with a papyrus label and the "sell by" date in Egyptian hieroglyphics. Still works.

Is that 42 point 368 years, or 43 thousand 368 years? Pretty sure
the shelf life of Hoppes #9 (in a glass bottle) is closer to the latter.:)

No actually I had a lot of firearms at one time but I had to sell most of them to keep a roof over my Mother and I and food on our table when I lost my job and before I finally retired. After that I got so depressed that I took about a 7 year break from doing any shooting. :(
