    Cool. Think I used all of mine. Using Hoppes now. Was it a cold issue?

    I don’t use it but they asked me if I did. Something about the Teflon in it. Teflon is I good apparently?

    Rem Oil leaves a deposit of Teflon on metal parts, some say it's good and some say its bad. Bench Rest Rifle shooters claim the Teflon builds up on barrel rifling and it can't be removed easily throwing accuracy off.

    Yeah. Something about the PTFE in it melts at 450* and can gum up and get sticky.

    Thanks for the info. So, what's the case for not using it in a smoothbore, if you know? I'll stick with my Hoppes, until I hear how it's also bad for my guns. :dv

    What types of problems? I'm not trying to argue. Just curious. I guess we've just not had the issues, (shooting clays, 3" steel for ducks, and 2 3/4" lead pheasant loads) so I thought they were doing alright. The only comment my buddy has made is that he's had his slow down and eventually misfeed when the rails get dry. Like i said, I'm not doubting anyone who has had a problem, we've just had no reason whatsoever to dump ours, and we both really like how our A5's shoot.
