Well, I ain't going to eat any of it (and I make and eat Kimchee regularly) but I have been impressed with the way it dissolves powder residue. I haven't scrubbed my stainless revolver cylinders with Lead Free since I started using the Ballistol. I like it so far, we'll see. Only been using it for about two months.

The spray can I bought of Ballistol works OK, but I don't think I will be buying it again.
Too thick for my taste, and haven't gotten used to the peculiar odor.

I'm going back to Gunzilla.

Wait till you are older. Peculiar odors don't bother you near as much. I actually kind of like that smell. I know what you mean about being too thick, though. I wipe the guns down with my 'vote obama' (ain't never said that I never made a mistake) t-shirt for a few minutes after I've finished cleaning them, and I still have a mildly soppy mess when I drag them to the range.

Great stuff..

I use Ballistol on all my guns, knives, and anything else i can think of. It works great and i dont have to worry about ruining a stock or grip finish. Its not as good a solvent as others, but if you let it soak a bit, it will take out just about anything.

Dam I want some of this Witchery (lead fouling ,corrosive salt,scrapes,bruises,dandruff shampoo) that goes by BALLISTOL lol. But seriously does anyone in West Hou know where I can find some besides the net. I looked before when I had some old Russian surplus at all the big box stores Academy, Basspro, Gander Wander even Carters Country and a couple of gun shops no succes. I always got the "this here will do just as good" The best I could do was find it on Amazon.

I literally just placed an order for 3 cans on Amazon .... its covered by Prime free shipping and by having it sent to our current location (we are traveling in our camper) we don't have to pay any sales tax .... what all this adds up to is it being well over a dollar a can cheaper than I can buy it back home

The stuff is made in England (for almost a hundred years from what I gather). I think it's expensive with shipping costs but I have only bought it from Amazon.

Who cares? I order a big bottle and a spray can, and I'm set for quite a while.
I started using ballistol because I shoot corrosive ammo, and using a mix of hot water and ballistol does a fine job on it.
I've grown to like the smell better than traditional CLPs.
It does a fine job on leather and wood, and even makes the finish of polymer frame pistols look better.

Actually Germany. Ballistol was manufactured and developed by the Germans in WWI for the German Army. There's the European version and there is the American version made in America.

Lead Slanger will become famous soon enough
This thread made me get my bottle out and give my CZ P01 a once over. I haven't used it much, but can see myself using it a lot more. It was a lot smoother than it usually is after its normal Rem oil treatment.

I put Ballistol in my Corvette's crankcase, a pint in the outhouse monthly, and I keep a spray can on the nightstand.

In reality, all my guns are seasoned with the stuff. I like it on my rifles and handguns and have never had a friction failure and I shoot aluminum, steel, and pot metal frames and slides, etc. Ballistol does a great job.
