Re: Barrel lube for storage
After cleaning cr-moly bores, I run a patch dampened with a very mild solvent/protectant called RustPrufe through the bore and chamber . I dry patch before shooting them, particularly the chambers. Setting in the safe in the house, it might not be necessary to protect them, but.....
If you use enough oil to run down the bore, that's too much.
For long-term storage, I rub gun grease into a patch and swab the bore and chamber thoroughly with it. When you get ready to shoot, it is CRITICAL to run solvent and dry patch every trace of the grease out first. Grease in the chamber can be very dangerous.
Stainless bores and chambers I leave dry after cleaning.
You can search this site for more info. Much more info.
Not the only way, just the way I do it.
