    Odd the way things converge. https://www.scran.ac.uk/packs/exhibi...lubricants.htm

    However, the finest lubricants came from sperm whales, a fishery dominated by the Americans. Sperm whales, like all whales, have a blubber layer but in addition they also have within their heads a huge reservoir (known as the case or mellon) containing up to 2,000 litres of a straw-colored, oily wax called case oil. Case oil was easily harvested since the head-matter was liquid when warm; the head of the sperm whale was simply cut open and then the oil could be bailed-out with a bucket, straight from case to cask.


    Case oil also contained Spermaceti, a solid, white, crystalline wax that congeals on contact with air. Spermaceti was named from the Latin sperma, �sperm,� and cetus, �whale,� in the mis-belief that it was the coagulated semen of the whale.

    Relax a bit. Lube threads tend to get everyone really on edge for some reason. It was just a few years ago LAV dunked a BCG in a tube of Mobil 1 (or some brand of motor oil) before installing it straight into an AR and shooting it. Yeah it went everywhere for a few rounds but it didn't cause a singularity to form which engulfed a hundred square miles of land around it. The SOTAR vid looks like a lot of lube, I agree, and don't use that much on my ARs, but with that said I understand his position of cost vs benefit and if that lube technique works for him, then what's the issue?

    I can see no evidence of that.

    I didn't either, but some mentioned it in passing so I wasn't sure.

    Old style lube recommended for ARs/M16 FOW. It's decent stuff and the LSA-T is even better. About halfway between grease and oil in consistency.

    LSA (lubricant, semi-fluid, automatic weapons), it was still used by us for the M-2 in Iraq in 2006-7. We had to go to the Marines to get more as we never had enough. The dirt stuck to it like there was no tomorrow but it would allow Ma duece to run and run well. We were told not to use it on the 240-B but did anyway.
