    I need a preservative for the insides of my smokepoles.

    Is there anything out there that will not render a BP charge inert? For instance, if I’m leaving a gun loaded for a while.

    Not looking for a lubricant to put over the ball, I’m looking for a preservative for the barrel itself.

    I use Froglube or Eezox after cleaning and before loading. Let it dry and it becomes a dry film which doesn’t seem to interact with blackpowder at all but does protect the bore.

    Hornady 1-Shot/Cleaner-Lube (not case lube)

    1. Run wet patch down bore & out -- Let Dry
    2. Load
    3. Run another semi-wet patch down and back out

    The advertisement material for Birchwood Casey Barricade reminds me of Boeshield. Has anyone ever used that?
