    I have been using the wet lube WD specialist for a while, it works well. I am just starting to try WD Specialist Drylube ptfe on sml breech plug threads to try to keep the threads form getting gritty as grease pics up crud when cleaning. ptfe is used as a mold release in industrial, I think CRC has one too.

    Hornady One Shot turns into a gummy awful mess. One sprays it in side the rifle innards; it turns into gum, the shooter becomes sad. Me, i won't never use it again on anything dear to me. Might use it on a trailer hitch ball, but never again inside where one can't get at it to remove it.

    That's worrisome! Was it temperature extremes, or just poor/different formulation? Guess I'll stay with WD Specialist!

    Neither of the two products that I use are in this list. Some of what I have used are in this article, but by far I have had much better results with Montana Extreme Bore Conditioner and Slip 2000 Synthetic products.

    I don't ever use never seize, too messy, I was using high temp moly bearing grease, but it or anything moist will collect particles so I thought I'd try the dry ptfe. I will post on it after I have tried it a bit. Mind you this is on sml.

    Try Teflon tape in the Bp instead of Grease or Never seize. Much less messy.

    It was quite a shock when the Hornady spray lube failed, when used in rifles. It was quite difficult to remove from the innards of rifles; that was very frustrating. One reason it was quite a shock to witness the poor performance of this lube, is because the case lube has worked perfectly for years, and years.

    The Hornady case lube is, in my opinion, the best case lube available. No muss, no fuss.

    The tape suggested by ShawnT, has worked great for me. It is not messy. It makes a perfect seal. Breech plug comes right out when shooting Blackhorn powder; no stuck issues. Simple, clean, easy. Photo shows Omega plug with a single wrap of tape, before it is installed in rifle.

    I use the tape as Ron shows on all of my plugs regardless of maker. My four CVA gun's plugs without tape are fairly clean after shooting but I still use the tape. With the tape the plugs require very minimal cleaning.

    And +1 for teflon tape on breech plug threads. I still put a dab of anti-seize grease on my vent liner threads

    Only powder used in my rifles is Blackhorn. That being said, nothing is used on the vent liner threads, nothing. Vent liners turn out easily. The vent liner is removed, and cleaned every time the rifle is cleaned; the plug cleaned.

    Agree with Sabotloader Montana Extreme Bore Conditioner is great stuff. The only drawback to Montana Extreme is my wife can't stand the smell.
    I usually use Break Free clp as lube on all my muzzleloader and center fire rifles.

    I get the "no need to antisieze threads" when using Blackhorn... but I just can't get away from an ounce of prevention... and its just the smallest dab.
