`I've been lubing hard lead Crosman premiers for a couple decades to minimize barrel fouling and extend the time needed before bore cleaning. For all these years I've used Slick50 One Lube from the areosol can and I'm still using the lube from this can all those years.

I don't spray the stuff directly on the pellets because it will diesel if it gets inside a pellet skirt when shot from my .177 R9 or HW95 springers. All I want is a film of lube on the pellet rifling surfaces so I spritz a few drops in the bottom of a dedicated pan, smear the lube evenly over the bottom of the pan with the fingers, dump in a complete 1250 count box of CPLs, stir the pellets around gently with a finger, then dump some into my pellet pouch and the rest back into the cardboard box they came from. Pellets being lubed…….

I've recently lubed a box of CPLs using a lemon furniture polish similar to "Lemon Pledge" (judging by the contents on the can) and it does seem to work well also and it seems to be "wax based" whereas the Slick50 One Lube is "petroleum distillate" based with a ptfe additive (why the stuff will diesel). LOL, after a couple decades the plastic wrapper around the Slick50 One Lube can just came loose and these "warnings" were also printed on the can……..

Anywhoo….I didn't find that the pellet lube altered the velocity or accuracy of my .177 R9 or .177 HW95 shooting hard lead CPLs, but it did reduce bore fouling and increased the barrel cleaning intervals……………
