    Results of extreme test #1
    These are forged steel couplings that were sanded down to bare metal.
    Oil was appiled to all equally, and all were subject to spraying with water and drying out between sprays. Once a day during the week, and twice on weekends. The time frame was 14 days.

    H=Hoppes
    S=SGBO
    C=CLP (Breakfree)
    R=Remoil

    The multi pics are the worst side and best side.
    The singles are all the best side.
    Please forgive my camera skills.

    Well, that didn't work.
    I get this message:

    Any ideas? Never had this happen before.:confused:

    I got the .308 out and run the cast SBGO boolits thru. same story as the CZ 9mm test, good accuracy and no leading. SBGO makes a good bullet lube for both smokeless rifle and pistol loads with cast bullets.

    It's clear to me that Hoppes is at the bottom, followed closely by the Remoil. The results from the SBGO and the CLP really make me scratch my head. Why the vast difference on the better side?

    I'll perform this one again to get a better feel.

    Thanks to JLA for the barrel parts. I've a business partner that will sandblast them for free. That will be the next challenge. Once that one is finished, the couplings will go at it again (after cleaning of course).

    3 attempts should give a pretty accurate gauge of the ability to protect in a harsh environment.

    Please keep in mind that this test is based on the exposure to the elements only. Those elements being my living room. It in no way reflects the various oils abilities in a mechanical application, or weather extremes.

    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
