When the day is done, the shootn' over and cleanin' ought to happen, it don't make much nevermind whut yer lube was, unless ya couldn't hit whut ya aimed at. . . . . .
Did yer irons keep runnin'
How much did yer lube help/hurt???
Now, how easy do yer guns clean up? Mine clean up with a mere spritz of Moosemilk and a pull of the boresnake. Yup, that's it. I'm done. I'm sittin' on my butt enjoyin' some great company whilst you. . . . . . . . are fightin' yer guns, sayin' "I'll clean 'em at home", puttin' off a chore. . .?
Go back up and take another look at the recipe for Pearl Lube. It's soft, it's messy, it's not a crayon or wax. Whut it is is a very soft BP lube that keeps the fouling soft, accuracy second shot accurate, yer guns runnin' like new and makes cleanup a snap.
No, Pearl lube don't like to stay where it's put. It likes to migrate all over yer ammo, gum up yer dies and mess up yer hands. It also mixes with BP soot and keeps it from formin' a hard cake. That means your second shot, and your last shot, all enjoy the same accuracy. It's worth the extra bother.
Just messy ol me. . . .
