Just wondering what type of lube you folks are using on your rails, I use Silicone oil, I was running a Unlimited club match last month and was keeping very busy running targets along with trying to shoot, reload and clean! Trying to save time I was only cleaning every other group, (5 shot matches) and cleaning the gun on the base, on the bench. My groups kept getting bigger throughout the day and i assumed that I was out of tune and kept changing loads and seating. Second to the last match I took the top off and oiled the balls and rails. Won Small group... evidently my rails got dry even though it seemed to track just fine. Iím wondering if there is maybe a better lube out there that lasts longer? Most important thing i learned was taking shortcuts very seldom pay off in the end, at least I learned it at a club match and not a registered match way out of town!

Thanks
Scott

Not really, he's just endorsing it. I sent a note to the email he listed though - no response to my PM here. (Which I can understand - I'd ignored a half a dozen messages before realizing I had PM's...)

I had the same trouble as GeneT but I set all the PM items to "yes" in the general settings. Of course, I just about had to do that being the moderator of sorts but I don't miss many this way.... If I seem to miss a PM it's because I deleted the email and forgot to read the PM.

I donít think it matters what you use. Iíve used whatever is handy on mine. You have plenty of time to wipe the three contacts and relube between matches. The top moves four or five inches and back again 15-20 times. Weíre complicating a simple function.
