    I didn't have any BB's so I used pellets for a little extra shake action.

    That is the only con to this oil. It NEEDS something in there to help mix it up. The pro to shaking for a long time before use is it gets the stuff that makes it work so good on the metal.

    BB's ( stainless steel) going into each bottle for Asia Pacific from thursday

    know how funny a look i got when i walked into a supplier and asked how much for 1000 SS BB's ??

    dunno about the US side yet Sent a message to MR ( boss of SBGO ) but no reply back yet

    i figured food grade SS bb's would not affect the USDA approval on the ag product componant ;)

    Well, so far we havent had much "diversity" in the weather here (as far as rain goes) but, the temps have been all over the place and the rain actually has just started this morning. The Rem oil seems "fading" the most as expected. The Hoppe's is still hanging in there and the CLP is doing good and the SBGO....that's the one I'm going to check on later this morning after it's had a good rain on it. I "glanced" at it yesterday as I was walking by in a rush, and something didnt look "right" with the SBGO? We have had a lot of frost on the barrel being tested and changing temps but ive barely had the time to have a good look. But I'll give it a real good look this morning and see how all four are really faring!

    Shooter and Jack, I got my bottle of SBGO today and cant wait to try it out. Many thanks to you both for sharing this oil with me and the other forum members that got to try it out. I will have to go shooting this weekend so's I can get a bunch of guns dirty. Hey Jack, what does the araberical writing say on the decals? Those are pretty cool. One is going on my Tundra.:D

    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!!! :D)

    This sounds like a great product and one I will definately try out, but I've got one question. According to the instructions you use this on the bore. From my very earliest firearms instruction up through the military, I've always been taught that while you can use a few drops of oil on a patch through the bore if you are storing a gun for a time, to ALWAYS remove any trace of oil before firing. Is that no longer true? I've wondered about this before when I've heard people say they always run an oily patch through the bore when cleaning their guns.

    The last step when cleaning is run an oiled patch down the barrel to keep rust away. Then, BEFORE you shoot again, run a dry patch or two down the barrel to remove the oil. :)

    Bobitis, if you do not add some BBs to help the mixing, then you will need to shake it a long time. Once it is all mixed and you put it on look out! This stuff is awesome!!

    IT stays like a grease but lubes like an oil and protects metal like nothing I have ever seen. A little goes a loooong way. This bottle will last me a long time
