i don't shoot my Weatherby near as much as I would like to partially because of fear of bore erosion. The Rifle is now 38 years old and has about 400 rounds though it in that time. Erosion is not a problem now but I can see wear. Anything that would help in that regards is worth investigating.
The site say the price is 44.99 plus hazardous shipping charges, for what is enough for one rifle perhaps. That's a good bit of change if you order enough for several rifles. Before I do I would like to hear others on it.
I didn't find it at Bass Pro Shop or Gander Mountain, in Nashville. May be the only way to buy it is order it.
you do realize the 17 Remington is already running the 4000 fps plus to begin with? so they may pick up a couple hundred fps faster velocity.
personally if i were you, if you have only put 400 rounds through that rifle in 38 years, you are not anywhere near wearing the bore or the throat. spend your money elsewhere.
and if this stuff was effective as they say, the benchrest and serious target shooters would be buying the stuff by the 55 gallon drum and using it. some of those guys can wear a barrel to the point of losing accuracy because of the hot and fast rounds they shoot in 1000-300 rounds. that can be in a year or less that they are replacing a barrel with a new one.
