Hello,

I am completely new to the world of Dri-Lubes. I just bought some Hoppes Dri-Lube. In the directions, it says to wipe away any over-spray. My question is, with the dri-lube, when i spray it i get a lot of white stuff is that over spray? Should I wipe that away or leave it?

Thanks,
Nick

havnt used the hoppes...i have used remington's dri lube on magazines and they advise to wipe away any overspray (which does turn white)...just a quick blast on my mags seems to work well....from my experience too much can ruin a good thing...if you get a white hazy film youve used too much !

The Dri-Lube is basically Teflon in an alcohol carrier. When it dries the Teflon is left behind, that's the white stuff you see. By "overspray" they are talking about removing it from surfaces you don't want it on. This stuff is great. I use it on my carry guns, and on my home defense shotgun that spends most of its time under the bed, where regular oils seem to be awfully bad about collecting dust.
