After 10 days of the cut off shotgun barrel with four oils on it, the Rem-Oil
actually done well. There is still a thin protective (film) on the barrel and (nothing) got through to the barrel. The Hoppe's Elite
didnt fare as well, it's basically worn off with a bit or residue left on the barrel. The Break Free CLP
is still good to go! Almost as if it had just been put on the barrel. The Silver Bullet Gun Oil
is still on and looks about the same as the CLP.
When I applied all four oils on the barrel I put it on thick and didnt wipe any excess off. From what I can tell and would say, the SBGO and the CLP are running neck to neck. The Hoppe's Elite was a no-go against the others. The Rem-oil actually done well, better then I thought it would.
But this barrel was left out on a deck for 10 days and not touched. We didnt have much rain till the past few days, and frost most every night and the barrel was placed to where it could catch the brunt of the weather.
So with this said, one can make his own conclusions I suppose. It may have been better to go out from time to time and finger-print up the barrel and seen how that took with all four.....(from the test and conditions from what I done...HOPPE'S ELITE SUCKS big time!!!
