I use oil. I clean the tubes after each shoot and have never had a problem.

Oh my... guess what I found in my AR tool box. A jar of Aeroshell 33MS and a bottle of Locktite LB8008 C5-A. I guess I had some greases after all.

I'm an odd duck but I use plumbers teflon tape and have been happy with it. Tubes stay in place and no oily or greasy mess. Just my thought. Grade6man

I’ve been doing this myself for years. Some of my guns don’t need it, others loosen up after just a few shots. For those, I’ll put one wrap, pulled tight and pressed into the threads before it goes in. Works great.

I’ve never used a locktite product on choke tubes. So sorry, can’t help with that. I’ve only used various grease, oil, and occasionally tape. I think grease is probably my number one choice for chokes.

Absolutely.

Yes, that grease or Anti-seize will work, but that grease has a tendency to separate, keep it away from the wood.

I use the grease that came with my Briley tubes.
I've also used anti-seize grease in the past.

I prefer grease as I'm really bad at cleaning my guns and it's more forgiving than oil

The manual that came with my Browning 725 said to use oil. I tried grease, but oil works fine and isn’t as messy.

If you pull the chokes and clean them after every shoot, does it matter?

Just got my first shotgun and wanted some recommendations on lube for the core tube or if any is needed at all. I got some Mobil 28 that I used on my rifle but I'm not sure if that will work. Thanks! gold price in hyderabad

I read somewhere years ago that the reason grease is recommended is not for anti seize / lubrication , but to create a seal between the choke tube and the barrel.
If the threads are a little loose then gases can get in between the choketube and barrel and potentially blow the tube out of the end of your barrels.
Grease being alot thicker than oil creates a seal that withstands the pressures better than oil .
I can see the rationale of this thinking, and have always used grease from that day on .

The right grease works great for chokes tubes, prevents loosening, seizing, etc..
But I promise you grease isn’t going to keep gasses from getting by. If gas is leaking by the tube/barrel seal, it’s just going to blow ant grease in its path out of the way.
