I have used it for cooking and as a bore/lock oil and patch lube for years, makes great pancakes and pastry lard.
years ago it was in high demand when it was legal to sell it.
after rendering I let it sit for a day, it will seperate. the fine oil goes to the top, I syphon this off with a horse syringe and use the fine oil for the bore and lock.
the remaining thicker grease I use for cooking, patch lubes and leather dressing
only had 2 rifles out of several that shot their best groups with straight bear grease.
the other rifles shot their best with bear grease mixed with rendered deer tallow in a 50/50 mix, maybe too "slick" for some rifles by itself.
I had the same problem with simple green as a patch lube for target shooting, most rifles I shot it in did their best with simple green mixed with water 50/50, simple green by itself shot tighter groups than spit patch, but it noticeably tightened groups even more mixed with water.
