    I'd use it on the part of the back causing the pinching of the sciatic nerve to help with joint inflammation in that area... a good chiropractor too maybe? Hope it brings some relief.

    What oil stripping solvent did you guys use prior to use ?

    Are you guys using this on your BCG surfaces without any other products ?

    How about feed ramps and barrel rifling, etc?

    I assume it's safe for melonite treated surfaces too?

    Frog Lube sells a solvent to strip, although, brake cleaner will do.

    Yes, I am using it on my BCG w/o other products... not enough rounds through it to confirm though.

    Yes, feed ramps and rifling as well.

    Yes, ok for melonite treated surfaces. Confirmed from H. "Bull frog" (different product) is not ok.

    RD, maybe we could ship some hogs up your way and turn them loose. BRD has one now he may part with.

    Hogs are fun to hunt. However, they are destructive and a farmers worst nightmare.

    Don't use brake cleaner on melonite, it will also discolor it

    I love the stuff. After using it 1 time, I bought the solvent spray and paste. I threw away all of my other cleaning solvents & oils.
    And yes it is food grade & edible. Its good on a cracker.

    Only place I ever used it was in my side charging bolt carrier to keep the dust off while hunting.

    I no longer use it, I found something that I believe is better, Slip2000 EWL.

    I have no reason to use it either since I have over 4,000 rounds with no failures using Hoppe's gun oil.

    TCD I had that same thought at first but after seeing the many tests, results, plus being given a sample to try I made the switch. There is really nothing better and I use it as much for the corrosion protection here on the Gulf Coast as much as for its lube capability. I did want to get away from petroleum products but still open a hoppes bottle to smell it...lol I doubt many of us run a gun as hard as the SEALS do and that is really who it was developed for by one of their own.

    My issue with froglube is cold weather performance. So those using it, don't put too much on. I seen people put it on and just coat the crap out it. What happens in cold weather is it freezes up and may cause light primer strikes. Even in warmer weather it gets tacky.

    Slip2000 is rated down to -110 degrees. You can watch videos of froglube paste freezing rock solid on youtube and also light primer strikes. Is this the tell all, no.

    My issue was out Varmint hunting with froglube, rising the ATV, cold weather, and the froglube was very tacky and made the action cycle hard by hand. Froglube even states to use sparingly in cold weather. I think this is true for warmer weather also. I applied it with a heated part and wipe off any excess.

    I believe froglube is still a good lubricant and protectant, but for all conditions I think there are better choices like slip2000 EWL.

    If there was a problem in the winter then it was user error, FL is approved for Artic conditions

    How do I use FrogLube in cold weather?
    Always follow manufacturers instructions for your firearm. FrogLube is designed for arctic use. When you follow FrogLube directions, your lubricant is contained “within” your firearm, not “on” it. You should “winterize” your firearm before the onset of cold temps. Use FrogLube “Dry – Clean” Solvent to remove excess lube and protectant film. Wipe Dry. Use FrogLube CLP lube very sparingly. Your firearm is now ready for cold temperatures. For comprehensive instructions, follow the guidance provided in professional manuals such as the US Army’s Field Manual FM 31-70, Chapter 6. Excerpt; “DURING THE WINTER, WEAPONS MUST BE STRIPPED COMPLETELY AND CLEANED WITH A DRY – CLEANING SOLVENT TO REMOVE ALL LUBRICANTS AND RUST PREVENTION COMPOUNDS.”

    I was at a brown water navy veterans anniversary party with his wife of many years.
    My job on the buffet line was to use tongs to get the chicken out of the roaster and put it on the Chinet plates.
    As the people would come thru the line I would ask them how many pieces they wanted.

    They seemed very interested and smiling until I told them it tasted just like chicken.

    All of it was chicken of course, but that phrase brought sheer terror to many.

    That was twenty years ago and I am still laughing.

    We had a LOT of 'chicken' left over.
