Anyone here use Gene's Black Powder Seasoning Gun Lube? The maker makes some very specific claims as to its performance. Its advertised in Muzzleloader and Muzzleblast.

Anyone here use it?

I e-mailed them asking for specific information about their product about three months ago, still haven't gotten a reply. Makes me kind of wonder what kind of outfit they are. Anyone can make claims and buy ad space. Other's results may vary.

I have spoken via email to the maker and he sent me a sample... I have tried it as patch lube and it works fine--good actually.

I am in the process of testing it as a bore preservative, but it will have to perform better than my usual home made lube, or I'd have no reason to buy it.

Bore seasoning like an iron skillet makes no sense to me at all since our barrels are steel and not cast iron, leaving residue and building lube on top of it is a good way to severely pit your bore under the "seasoning." But if you clean your gun thoroughly after shooting and use a decent natural lube to protect it and avoid petroleum solvents and lubes, your gun will be easier to clean--and get better the more you polish the bore by shooting it. I suspect Gene's lube is fine for that purpose--I will report back after I have given it a fair test.

I found Gene's lube to be a good patch lube for shooting, but in my experience, it did not have the rust protection I require, so i had to conclude the tests without being able to prove the maker's three patch cleaning claim.

Other people might have different results of course.
