Sure. Hoppe's #9 has been around for eons, and works today just as good as it did before any of us were born. Break Free is a CLP. CLP stands for Cleans, Lubricates, Protects. While there is nothing really "wrong" with it, there are much better products on the market for shooters today. CLP was developed for the military as a single product for soldiers to use that would accomplish a multitude of tasks. Generally a product that is designed to do a lot of things at once, doesn't do any of them really well. For a product to carry to the range, or do a quick and dirty cleaning, CLP is fine. But for home use after a long range session there are better cleaners and lubricants avaliable.
For a good bore cleaner I've been using Bore Tech Eliminator. There is nothing that will remove copper fouling better, faster, or safer. It is completely odorless and biodegradable.
This stuff also has rust inhibitors in it, and contains no Ammonia, so if any were to get into the gas system of a semi automatic it would have no adverse effects. Once you try it you'll give away your other copper removing solvents, it works that well.
For lubrication I just use Mobil 1 motor oil, and Mobil 1 synthetic grease, or else Moly Grease. All three are avaliable at any auto parts store and can be purchased inexpensively. Any and all of these products will work far better than CLP, and are easy to use.
