I prefer the dry graphite, etc. sprays like Remington Dry Lube. 

 

These don't thicken in cold weather and don't collect dust and crap from the field.

schaeffer's penetro90 inhibits rust wont freeze doesnt cause malfunction and make the action smooth enough you'd get accused of taking it to a gunsmith, cleans a barrel pretty well too

I've been using  CorrosionX and i'm really happy with the results.  It seems to get more fouling out as well as overall protection.

I like the dry graphite lubes, too. I actually used a #2 pencil to put graphite inside the rails of a 700 once in minus teens temperatures. I also disassembled the bolt and wiped it dry. It didn't seem to hurt and I know regular oil would have.

I've been using TetraGun lubricants with reasonable success, but I also use Microlon where applicable.

I have used Rem oil for about 60 years with good results. I have a friend at the range the swears by Break Free for about everything so I am trying it on my handguns. I have used Kroil in the barrels of fouled guns that were fouled with lead, copper or moly and let it soak then it does seem to float everything free and leave the rifleing clean.

 

Thanks for the input

If Kroil doesn't do it, Nothin' will. I have never used it on a weapon, but that stuff is great on stuck robotics. (don't use it in paint booths, it causes craters bad, ASK ME HOW I KNOW!!! LOL)

For a bore cleaner, I mix equal parts Shooter's Choice and Kroil.  The Shooter's Choice is a good, ammonia-free, general purpose lead and copper fouling remover that's not overly agressive, and the Kroil is a very fine penetrating oil that gets into every pore of the barrel steel providing extra protection.  I've been using this concoction for about 10 years now, and it works great!  Several of my friends have been converted as well, and it seems like my barrels clean up much easier now than in the past, but it may just be my imagination.  If you use Teflon-based lubricants like Rem Oil, Break Free, etc., just make sure you don't use them in your bore!  Teflon, when subjected to intense heat, turns into Fluorine, which can supposedly attack certain barrel steels, specifically austenitic SS such as the 416 stainless frequently used for barrels.  They're fine for everything else, though.
