Has anyone tried this product in their .50 BMG bore? Solution containing ceramic particles that get fused into the "micropores" in the barrel by firing several rounds. Supposed to make fouling less of a problem. It's been around for years, but I'm just now looking into it. Is it a snake-oil or does it really work?
I tried unsuccessfully to search the archives but couldn't get it to work, so sorry if this has already been hashed out before.
I've read the following on the Internet for the last 3yrs. Those people like it.
Tried it on a glock barrel....not the best test bed & don't notice much of a difference. I also don't shoot it a lot (see not a great test bed comment).
I was going to try in on the .50 but was afraid I would ruin an expensive barrel (ala Steyr)
I've read the following on the Internet for the last 3yrs.
haha; that was some bad wording
I read the "following" (the people who used it & liked it). They were all pro (for it) of course. Claimed easier maintenance, cleaning. Dont remember about the accuracy part. It was 2-3yrs ago when it was under a different name & this company didn't exist, product has been around longer.
Thanks for the explanation.
piqued my brain & I recalled the original name "Micro Slick" http://www.nicindustries.com/dry_film_lubricants.php
googling either brand brings up a good amount of results; the "fouling" I found is what I recall it helping as advertised (lessen fouling, ease cleaning); looking at the google results I think it's the "campfire" forums that offers the longest results of benchrest users...I even found a link & I think this fit4duty is the same guy offering the current Ultra Bore (going off memory) http://www.nicindustries.com/dry_film_lubricants.php
Reminds me a lot of the description of NP3 http://www.nicindustries.com/dry_film_lubricants.php
Off topic, but the Ultra Bore company also offers a coating (absorbs into bluing they say) that withstands 850hr salt spray test.....sounds good (not the 1st time I heard of it) though; dunno if it works good
