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.

I have been a superlube man as well. Tell you what, put that stuff in a little plastic bottle and start selling it. I'D BUY THAT FOR A DOLLAR!

There are tons of little pots for sale on ebay and such. Seems like a hard and messy way for me to make a buck.

Anyway, in 1981 we used GAA on our competition M14s on the Post Team, the First Army Area Team and then the All Army Team. In reality, any good grease will do.
