Default Liquified bore butter

A couple of weeks ago, I got out one of my bp pistols to have some fun. I loaded the powder, wad, seated the ball and opened my bore butter only to find it almost purely liquid. Needless to say, I fired the one ball and put it away. What caused that? It is possibly my fouth tube and I have never had that happen before. The tube was not very old. Oh well, bought some more. I was a little ticked off because the tube was not that old and mostly full.

I have several tubes of Bore Butter, one with each of my range bags/kits for my various BP guns. In my experience if the Bore Butter gets hot it turns liquid pretty quick. This summer in Texas (hot as h3ll) it doesn to take long to get soft and run out of an open tube.

I thought that it had gotten over heated, but I just don't know when. Oh well, they make it every day.

It should have gone back firm once it cooled off.

This has not. It is liquid. I still have the tube. I was bummed, but I did not want to even have a chance of a chain fire. I feel better when I can seal the the deal.

At least the stuff isn't priced like gold.

I've always used a patch dampened with Hoppes #9+ in my BPGs.

Hoppe's 9 - No. 9 Plus

Patches don't work well in revolvers.

This was not for cleaning. This was for sealing each of the chambers on the cylinder prior to shooting.

If you have anything that uses PRB's you can use it for a patch lube.
