What lube for chambering reamers?

So I've gotten all my stuff in place to start chambering, and I have the time to devote to it but that unfortunately is corresponding with a severe lack of coin so I'm unable to build the barrel flush system I was shooting for so I'm going to just do it with pulling and cleaning in appropriate increments, what kind of lube should I use?

cutting oil for chamber reaming - Sniper's Hide Forums

I am not a gun smith just a machinist we use castrol moly-dee for tapping and reaming stainless.

You might try the Vipers Venom.

I have a couple bottles of Vipers Venom from Bob and it is working great for threading so far! Also got the tooling he was showing of. Bob has been worlds of help and a great guy to talk to!!! I've about got over being nervous about chambering and am about to say screw it and go for it!!! Thanks Nat

There's a water based coolant out there called "Trim CE" that's pretty good. A gallon of the stuff would last you a life time. Just paint it on the reamer with a paint brush (don't mix it with water). I've found nothing anywhere that reams holes as accurately (really any high tool pressure loadings).

Tap Magic w/EP-Xtra. $47.50/gal. at www.wttool.com Good old fashioned Dark Threading Oil works , too (less then $20/gal.).
