I was using superlube on rifles…it's a great grease. However I did notice a couple things:
1) After pulling a rifle out of a bed job, the grease tended to migrate a bit…some of this was attributed to excess applied, but in some places where a thin coat was applied, it seemed to move as well.
2) The grease on the ferrule would disappear quickly, almost at the rate of being applied before a modest range session, then a few strings later…gone.
3) After a weekend shooting all day in the sun here in Texas, I noticed that the superlube got very oily…almost like melting.
In contrast, I have had GI lube applied to another rifle. It stays put. Does not seem as temperature fickle. The superlube did it's job, and the above issues were not noted in the winter.
I needed more grease, and found this at about the price as a couple tubes of superlube.
Now I just need 10,000 more rifles to apply it to.
