    I have been steadly shooting my STI Spartan and the SBGO is still in place. I would have had to lube any of my other 1911's by now if I was still using my old, "favorite" oil.

    Good to hear, and that's just it!
    I just got done after a good day of coyote hunting and alot of shooting afterwards. Most of the guns I had shot the last time out I just wiped down and lightly re-done them with sbgo and shot alot today. Just finished up doing the gun cleaning, and most of everything I cleaned just needed a good wipe down. With the P89, after a couple hundred of rounds through it, well seems the gun solvent is begining to be something I rarely use!

    I got some pics of an ongoing test I have been doing with SBGO regarding the galling of the LEE collet necksizer dies...

    Well, see for yourself... this is after necksizing about 500 .308s just as fast as I could feed them through the press...

    As you can see, no galling, just a smooth wear mark where the collet pushes against its seat to close around the mandrel.

    Josh, did you just lubricated the insides, or the entire die?

    I cleaned and lubed the whole die. except for the sizer mandrel. Then put a bead of SBGO on the collet seat and put it together and went to town on the entire box of spent brass...

    I have to thank a mate who showed me , he's in Texas , i got him to send me a bottle as a joke , then attended a training day with some army mates and we threw it on everything they had from styers up to M2's and everything was "better"

    i tryed it on flinters , .22's through to .416 it beat the old Ed's Red i swore by for years
    but it is a former marine who invented it so cant be too surprised , they have a way of getting the job done ..

    cheers to the Midnight Rider

    I've got a couple of bottles of SBGO Heavy Weapons oil. My friend has a 1918 Browning machine gun. It may be time to torture it a little. :D

    I actually took a 32 ounce machine oil bottle and mixed 2 bottles of HW and 2 bottles of regular SBGO and made 'Ultra SBGO'...

    How did that work out ??

    I still have a few bottles to giveaway but looks like the interest if fading. No new replys from the winners ?? No more personal testing ?? :confused:

    Shooter, I have lubed several of my guns with the SBGO I won but it has been to cold for this old man to get out and shoot. Going to change that tomorrow but will be shooting two new guns (a S&W 25-5 and a brand new Glock 19) so there won't be anything to compare the oil to in this case. What I have seen so far I can only say a little bit goes a long way with the SBGO and no complaints so far.
