Re: BoreButter

Yes. I may contaminate the powder and cause a hang fire or all of the powder may not ignite.

Re: BoreButter

Yes get that junk out of your barrel, and throw the tube B.B. away. There are much better rust preventatives to use.

Re: BoreButter

Smells nice but not that good as a rust preventative. I learned the hard way. I use wonder lube and it seems to do what I need both prevent rust and lube for shooting. Just one of many options though. Good Luck!!

Re: BoreButter

WD-40 works great at preventing rust.

Re: BoreButter

dont use it as a rust preventer. Use it for patches * round ball* or conical lube

Re: BoreButter

WD-40 is not a rust preventer.It is a water displacer.Guy on another site did a test with multiple nails that were all cleaned and all oil removed.Nails were then lubed with numerous oils from gun oils to transmission fluids.Board was placed outside exposed to all weather conditions.Last I heared olive oil was best and gun oils were failing.
During the muzzy season my barrels have NO oil of any kind in the barrel till after the season.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Re: BoreButter

yeah i can agree, wd40 will not prevent rust, i had a crankshaft turned and sprayed it down, That sucker was toast after 2 weeks in the shop. Money well not spent.

Re: BoreButter

I have used BB in my ML's for years and I have never had a hangfire because I didn't clean it from the barrel before shooting it.I use a very thin coat of BB in all my muzzleloader barrels.I would rather have BB in the tube than a puddle of WD40.JMO

All I can say is if it does not prevent rust my nice shiny bore should be pretty rusty by now.
