I definitely accept your suggestion and WILL try that, maybe even tonite! Just wondering as I did not see it mentioned, do you guys dilute the Ballistol? The chart on the can has 6 suggestions for dilution %'s ?

I believe it is mostly black powder shooters that dilute it.

Thank you rodbuster. I guess 100% can't hurt on the guns, but thought about using it on the wood and my leather holsters. Think it's ok at 100% for all applications ?

Just ran a jag and patch through my 686 revolver which is my cleanest gun at the moment. Five swipes through the 6 inch barrel then 3 swipes through all cylinders. This is what I saw.

I use it full strength, I spray it on my leather holsters, slings and I spray it on the wood of my henrys and wipe with a cloth and they look
real good. Been doing for a long time, it works great.

Great! I guess that's what I wanted to hear. Don't like having to dilute and worry about all that.Thank you rodbuster!!

Sounds like the gunsmith sold it to you at cost; good guy.

I put it into those little Rem Oil plastic dispensers and mark it with a "B".

Yes Henry88. I thought the price was right, was probably gonna pay whatever he wanted anyway after my search. Met a great guy and ended up talking with him for about an hour and a half. Learned a lot as we covered many subjects.
