Microlon Gun Juice

Anybody here use it?

Rumor has it that it reduces fouling/cleaning time and helps barrels last longer...At least that is what I heard.

Just curious.

Until someone says otherwise I will be sticking with wipeout.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Microlon Gun Juice

anything between the 338 Edge and the 338 AM?

long ranger ('smith in Canada) and Fifty talk a bit about the 338 LAI and the topic spills over into Gun Juice with a picture or two. Interesting...

Snakeoil.

Yes I have tried it.

There have been a few outlandish claims about this product.

If it sounds too good to be true........................

I don't see the product itself making claims that are very impressive at all. The wording doesn't seem outlandish. Who knows how well it works. What was your experience?

long ranger (Alberta Tactical Rifle) seems to have quite a track record of very good results with it. I'd be curious to hear others experience as I just bought some to try out. I've got a test in mind for it with a high round count 300RUM. I'll post back when I get a chance to finally shoot it over the chrono while applying the stuff.

I've applied it to four of my rifles over the past two weeks. So far I can confirm that it substantially reduces copper fouling and barrel cleaning time/effort. The stuff is laying down a coating on the surface of the rifle bore. It's rather time consuming to apply because you have to clean out all copper/carbon fouling before initial treatment, and again after each shot for ~20 additional shots in stainless barrels. If you don't clean well before treatment, you'll cover the copper and carbon fouling with the resin rather than laying the resin down directly on top of the bore itself.

I'll be chronographing again in the near future and I'll then learn if the Gun Juice has resulted in any changes in MV.

Whether or not it improves throat life, I may never learn, because I don't shoot enough to shoot the throats out of my barrels - generally speaking. On the other hand I recently purchased a 25 RUM and that's one of the barrels I treated with Gun Juice. If there was ever a fire-breathing, throat-burning cartridge, this might be it.
