    The Birchwood Casey isn't a specialty grease, as I said it's the same thing as most anti seize grease.
    Up until recently you could only buy large jars of Permatex or other brands usually 6 or 8 oz, when traveling which most of us do for hunting I don't need to carry around an 8 oz jar of grease with me with all the other crap I have to lug around.
    Now Permatex does make a small 1 oz tube of Anti Seize grease, so it's just as handy as the Birchwood Casey.

    I pull mine out periodically during the season and oil them up. Amazing how many people neglect them.

    I put some of my silver Permatex Anti-Seize in a small, used prescription bottle and keep it in my gun cleaning kit.
    Yes, the larger container is too big to haul around.
    Good move on Permatex's part to make a small tube as a little of that stuff goes a long way. I have a lifetime supply.

    I just use a little Vaseline, it seems to work just fine for me.

    Good reminded, had the opportunity to hunt the brackish water during the season and didn't clean my gun for about a week, its amazing what a little salt will do to a choke tube, it was a real pain in the *** to get out but I finally did.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    Yes very special,
    You can use it on any nut or bolt in marine, automotive, industrial, agricultural equipment.

    Not "special"; "specialty".

    It’s not a “cheap or tube specifix grease”. It’s a pretty standard grease that most people have in their household.

    I’m also trying to figure out the need to carry any around with you as well.
