When I was racing I swore by Mobile 1 oil for engines and grease for bearings. The stuff is actually incredible in lubrication and oil temps don't affect engine power like regular oils.

When I heard of people using Mobile 1 grease in their guns I thought awesome I've got 100 year supply of that laying around. It makes sense being synthetic but I personally was disappointed in the results with the grease. Not that it doesn't work good because it does but the engine assembly lube works better for me.

Are you guys using the Mobile synthetic using the EP1 or the EP2? It might be that what I had laying around is EP2 and is just too thick.

I'm a 72 year old Vet who's never been to the VA. The big scandal some years back started in the Phoenix VA hospital and that's where I'd have to go.

Sad because 25 years ago I drove a dear friend (Korean War vet with the Marines) to many appointments at the VA in Tucson, AZ as he fought cancer. He thought the people at the VA were great. I fear times and Covid have changed that.

I only use TWO lubricants in my Guns.  ALL of my guns are shot with BP or Subs.  For a grease application my "go-to" is Mobil 1.  A tube of Mobil 1 may last near forever.  For light oiling application I use Mobil 1 motor oil.  Both are synthetic and play extremely well with BP/Subs.

I shoot BP/Subs at matches, windy or not.  My only concession is when it's cool or damp.  Then I go with Suppositories.

What does Hodgdon's say? (I haven't looked.)

I've not been able to find a chart on Hodgdon's site.

Got my first shot 3 weeks ago from regular Dr. My second shot will be in 1 week from same. I am +75 disabled vet and haven't had a VA apt in well over a year. Tried to get an apt 6 months ago they had the office closed and someone came out of the door and told me to call for an apt, called and still did not get apt.

Vaccinations, Federal vs State; who is performing better, Federal!
Received my 1st dose from VA on the 13th, 1 of 12 Volunteers to take it. Understand, at 62, I was one of the younger, oldest 82, none of us should be there, but we did without vaccination.
Not notifying my family med doctor I am vaccinated, waiting to see time differential.
Took 3 weeks for VA to use staff allocation, patient vaccinations continue, about 70 per day.
To all VA Veterans, you have 2 paths for vaccination, VA or state, VA is best bet!

Both charts have Norma R1 as the fastest burning, But one chart has Tightgroup listed in 11th place, and the other chart has Tightgroup in 16th place.

One chart has TrailBoss in 15th place, the other chart has TrailBoss in 22nd place.

...I wanted to shoot some more today and test my theory, but the wind is blowing something fierce. It would blow the black smoke away so fast that I wouldn't get to enjoy it.

More than once I have been prepared to go shoot BP at a CAS match, but the wind was blowing so much that morning that I switched out and shot smokeless instead.  You can't smoke up the posse with the smoke immediately gone, what's the fun of that?   :)
