Mink Oil VS Bear Grease Empty
PostSubject: Mink Oil VS Bear Grease   Mink Oil VS Bear Grease EmptyDecember 2nd 2014, 6:49 pm

Got out today and decided that 100 yards bored me. I took it out to my 150 yard table and got all set up. First shot Thrilled me to death! Shots 2 and 3 with bear grease was an unacceptable 150 yard group. Luckily I always bring a couple tins with an assortment of patches and on the next 3 shots I used TOW Mink Oil lubed patches.

90gr Olde Eynsford 2fg
.020" patch material
.570" home cast round balls
Mink Oil & Bear Grease patch lubes

Bear grease #1 shot on clean bore.

Thank you Jonathan, have told some of the members several times there are better choices than bear lard.  Just because you read Davy Crockett used it doesn't make it good, that's probably all he had at the time.  

Just because the old boys used leaves to wipe on doesn't mean you should do the same ....   Dunno
