Since I am not there to shake your hand I want to say thank you for all your time and effort that you put into a extensive test. I can see that I cost you considerable time (many days) and money (buying all those products) and you did it all for us, gun owners. I have used One Shot for quite a while and now I know that I was probably using the best all around product. Again, thanks.

Just went into Great Lakes Outdoor Supply here in Bainbridge, OH to get some shells and CLP.

Saw that they had Hornady One Shot, so I picked it up and will give it a try!

Great thread.

Hmm it looked like the WD Specialist surpassed the One shot....
Am i reading the results correctly?!
Again just the fact that someone is cleaning a gun with some type of gun oil is going a long way to it's care....

Note that WD Specialist is a series of products, not one.

It's the "Corrosion Inhibitor" of the WD Specialist series.

Very interesting. I'm new here. I didn't see this thread when I posted my intro and suggestion for a gun oil. If/when you do another test. Would be interesting to see how Camellia Oil stacks up against this other stuff. But then the problem of which Camellia Oil?
I won't do an info mercial on it. I do like it.

EDIT: If you get interested in including this in another test. PM me for what I'm using. I'm not interested in advertising publicly. It ain't anything special. For skin /hair, beauty care. Nice yellow color to it. Inexpensive. You'd be surprised at how much some of these are charging for this stuff. Need to watch for pure Camellia Oil also. Nothing else in it.

Here is a topic in another forum that tends to make me want to avoid your suggestion.

BTW, continue to make this type of posting in multiple places and you will be deemed a spammer and be treated accordingly.

Thanks Curly. Good catch.

I tried the One Shot this past week in my Browning Gold, before shooting SPorting Clays at a charity shoot Wednesday at Selwood Farm (great place!) in Alpine, Alabama (near Talledega).

I'll have to say I was not real impressed, at least from a lube standpoint. I used it to clean the gun which I'd shot 200 rounds out of a few days before. It did a decent job in that regard.

As a lube, I had 3 FTE's out of about 150 rounds fired. I usually have none shooting the same shells after using Breakfree CLP or Rem-Oil, using the same shells. ( in this case - Rio 1oz. 8's and 7.5's).

It went on very dry, almost like a silicon spray. Seemed great on the barrel and receiver, and I'll probably use it again, but will put some CLP or Rem-oil on the piston/mag tube next time.

thank you for going to so much work in your tests, I've using www.Froglube.com since it became available and it's never let me down yet - I've tried other CLP's over the years but nothin comes close to Froglube if you use it correctly!

"Results would indicate that
Hornady's One shot
WD 40 Specialist
And perhaps Frog Lube
Have shown they outperform the others with Rust Prevent also doing a heck of a job."

Look like holiday stocking stuffers to me. Thanks for the informative post.

I recently tried the Hornady One Shot. Maybe I had a bad can, but I wasn't very impressed.

It went on very dry, almost like a silicon spray (yes - I shook the can well; and it was also this way from start to empty can).

It didn't seem to be good at all for cleaning; although I had already cleaned it fairly well. And it was relatively expensive. I might try it again; but so far it like a few of the others that are fairly high overall better.

Super Job! Your testing was very well done and informative. Thanks for all your hard work. You should send it to our publications, maybe they would make it an article. Good luck & Thanks. Steve

Great Job, Thank you for your effort. I do have one question though. I clean my guns with a cleaner, I lube with a lubricant and I protect my guns with a rust protector. What effect will mixing products have?
If you clean your gun with a cleaner (like #9 or bore shine or whatever) you are not starting with bare metal. Will this affect the results of the other products you use later? ( by mixing I mean using one product after the other, I don't mean actually mixing two together)
Again-Great job-Thanks for sharing it with everyone.

Too bad FrogLube is so expensive. I have always used Shooter's Choice or Hoppe's as my solvent and BreakFree CLP (for my rifles) as my lubrication and protection and CorossionX for GUNS (This is a different formula than what you tested) on my shotguns as lubrication and protection.

I have had great luck with all these.

I do agree with Ulysses that it would be nice to have some units of force on your graphs. If it takes 1N of force for one and 2N for another then that difference is fairly minuscule despite what is visually displayed on the graph.

Thanks for the experiment though, interesting read.

I've had the same question in my mind. I'll typically clean the action with a spray solvent like Gunslick, and the stuff I use has a bit of lubricant in it. I'll clean the barrel with Hoppe's solvent, and lube/protect it with Hoppe's gun oil. I also have a spray can of the highly rated WD40 Specialist dry lube. I have too wondered how these all co-mingle.

Just found this post; thanks for the time and effort you put into this study. Like several folks here I use solvents to clean and lubricant to lube and protect my guns. Storing guns properly, especially for long spells twixt shooting has a lot to do with keeping them in top condition. I've never had a corrosion problem in 50+ years of shooting. As an aside, I recently acquired a semi auto 12ga for the first time, having been a double gun nut most of my life. At a friend's suggestion I use CRC 3-36 to lube after cleaning the piston and related parts. Glad to see it among the top of your lube evaluation.
