    It seems that many have used and are happy with Ballistol.  That's great.

    I tried to get a "return" with Amazon for the Ballistol that I ordered and was delivered today.  Amazon said that the product was "not returnable" (due to some sort of hazmat shipping nonsense). But, Amazon gladly granted a REFUND to me for the purchase, and told me to just keep (or give away) the product to someone else.

    I suppose I may try it on exterior padlocks or something else, but I've decided to use Gunzilla after reading and hearing so many exceptional reviews for Gunzilla from Tom here and Kip from AoA.  Gunzilla sounds like an exceptionally great and extremely effective product for air guns.  I'm going to go with Gunzilla, for now anyway.

    Can I just put this in the YH hose and connect it to the tank hose and fill it that way?

    Concerning barrel cleaning, I have not had a need for anything more than WD-40 for keeping my airgun barrels clean, I just spray it on the lead in area of my bore snake and make about two passes with it when needed. As for pellet lubes, have tried multiple products with mixed results and have settled on the use of Marvel mystery oil in one of my rifles that likes lubed pellets. Had purchased a spray bottle of Napiers pellet lube awhile back and although I have no way to confirm it other than color, smell and performance, I believe it to be nothing other than repackaged Marvel Mystery Oil. As to whether lubing improves accuracy, I believe it does on some barrels and doesn't on others, have experienced both cases. I am currently using lube on the JSB 18.13 grain pellets I shoot out of my Nova Liberty and though there is minimal improvement in accuracy, the number of shots I can make between cleanings has more than doubled before accuracy begins to fall off. I find this a plus for the small amount of time it takes to lube the pellets. This may explain the different experiences people have had when experimenting with lubes, let your rifle choose whether there is an advantage or not.
