    Wondering who out there uses ballistol and your experience with how it performs? I have read good and bad reviews/ video’s about the product. I always use regular gun cleaning products like breakfree clp or wd-40 with no issues. I may give it a try just to see how it performs. What do you recommend?

    I use Balistol to clean my pcp barrel. It works very well and is good for the o rings too, never had any issues with it. According to the instructions on the bottle It can be used on the wood stock but I have never used it for that. I dont use WD40 as it gums up

    I found ballistol a brilliant product. I’ve used it on all my rifles stocks and metals. Also use it to clean my barrel.

    I build custom muzzleloaders and have been using Ballistol for years. I started using it on my air rifles and have had no ill effects. Its nice to have one cleaner/lubricant for everything. AND its GREEN

    Our mission: Develop an oil that can be used on EVERYTHING.At the turn of the 20th century, the German Imperial Army began looking for a multipurpose oil that could be used to clean and maintain the metallic parts of a rifle, while also protecting its wooden stock and a soldier’s leather gear.  To develop this oil, the Army contracted with Friedrich Klever and his son Dr. Helmut Klever, a professor of chemistry at the Technical University of Karlsruhe.In 1904, Dr. Helmut Klever succeeded in producing the special compound, which he named “Ballistol” (from the words “ballistic” and “oleum”, the Latin word for “oil”).  It soon became obvious that this new “ballistic oil” had truly amazing capabilities, and in 1905 the Imperial Army tested and adopted Ballistol, which stayed in use until 1945.  By then, however, word had spread and within a decade, hunters, boaters, hikers, and outdoorsmen in Germany, Austria and Switzerland had converted to using this new “miracle oil.”The can isn’t the only thing that’s green.Ballistol cares about our planet, and we are committed to producing an environmentally friendly product.  With Ballistol, you will lubricate, penetrate, clean, protect, and preserve your equipment without contaminating the environment.Ballistol is biodegradable, and neither its use nor its disposal will pollute our air or water.  Its natural decomposition will not produce byproducts that are harmful to the environment.  The aerosol propellant is a propane/butane blend that does not contain CFCs.  In addition, Ballistol is non-carcinogenic and skin safe.

    Another +1 for Ballistol.  I’ve been using it on my air guns and powder burners for 30+ years.
