DuPont multipurpose dry lube with Teflon. I use it for most lubricating needs. And, I run a lightly coated patch of it through the barrel after cleaning.

It is sold as a chain lubricant. But it is a highly tenacious lubricant with good sheer, and adhesion, which once it dries isn't susceptible to temperature change. I go out and shoot in sub zero temps, so I tend to avoid oils, and greases as the viscosity goes up when they get cold.

I clean usually with hot soapy water.
In my experience the spray on red grease was a dirt magnet, I did fleet maintenance on city busses and my boss wanted us to use that stuff everywhere(batteries included:/ by the time I left they had quit ordering it. Of course comparing a bus to a firearm is "apple ta oranges" guess as long as u keep it away from dust and such it will work well.

Yeah, it is apples and oranges. Those buses don't get the regular scrubbing my gun does. It gets a good wiping once a week, and a good scrub once a month even when I haven't shot it.
