New guy again..............I've been using the silver automotive stuff on my CVA Optima breech plug, but it is about impossible to remove all the residue from the barrel threads when cleaning. Have a big tube of T/C bore butter, would it work for this application? thanks, Randy

Bore Butter doesn't work that great as a BP lube.

The silver anti seize you use works great, white teflon tape works extremely well!

If you want to clean that nasty stuff up easily, get a can of Birchwood Casey GUN Scrubber. It blasts all that stuff off very easily.

That silver stuff was meant to stay put and work......

Teflon tap all the way, I have never had a problem removing any Breech Plugs. And no darn mess.

I also use Teflon tape but sometimes when I run out the silver stuff or coppa-slip makes for very good back-up's

It appears the silver stuff does help prevent corrosion, but it is time consuming to try to clean it all from the barrel threads, it takes a while to get it off the BP too. Thanks again for the replies and I have 2 rolls of TT as I'm a diy guy and couldn't find my roll last plumbing job, bought another and later found the old one  :laughing5

"it is about impossible to remove all the residue from the barrel threads when cleaning."

Why do try to get it all off? As long as it's there, it's doing the job. I wipe it in a circle, apply a bit more and replace the plug, nipple, etc. It's been working like that for years with no problems.

Agree with Bob here  , but if you want to remove it completely use brake cleaner or carb cleaner.

I like using the silver auto anti seize stuff on my non-QRBP smokers..  I'm with you ...unless you have threading problems there's no need to get every speck of if off.
