I agree. I have seen higher pressure in the first shot with oil in it, compared to dry. I have read a lot of theory on whether to dry patch out, or leave it wet. Some feel it cleans easier if it is left wet. Some feel it isn't necessary. I guess it is whatever the shooter feels comfortable with. Thanks for the conversation.
