I'm working on long term use in a Glock, but figured I'd share my thoughts on it's use in an AR so far.
This was a rifle I assembled early this year shortly after the new year. Short of the original couple magazines to test and flesh out and issues(prior to first cleaning), the rifle has exclusively had Fluid Film as it's only source of lubrication.

According to my box count a moment ago, I've put a little over 700 rounds through it. Here are some pictures of the more worn portions of the bolt:

Bumper Automotive exterior Rim Auto part Automotive wheel system


If you compare that top photo with the one below, you'll have an idea of how much I use to lubricate it after cleaning. Just a dab, then wipe with finger to leave a thin film.

For my money, I'm completely happy with it so far. I'm going to continue using it, and will probably begin changing over my bolt guns as well.

Cheers

How's it smell?
A little like Dapper Dan. 馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ

Honestly for opening a gallon can, there is almost no smell at all. If you stick your face in the can, you'll know it's lanolin but it isn't egregious.

If you wanna try some, PM me an address and I'll send a little jar.

Cheers

I completely agree, and also have used both.

I've actually been using the bulk as my FL sizing lube for a bit over a year now.

A very LITTLE wiped on, is all you need. And you don't have to worry about your dies rusting, if you live in such a terrible humid environment as that. 馃槈馃槅

This is the same product that is used as a rust-preventing automobile undercoating?
Yes, and the same product JD dealers use to keep tractors shiney on their lots. 馃槈

I don't know what cast bullet lube is, so this is pure speculation.
Fluid Film is not thick or dry, like classic grease is; and it doesn't dry out. I don't think that's what you want in a cast lube, but I'm guessing.

If Lowes sells non-aerosol cans, that's the one you want for case lube. The aerosol cans aren't a easily dosed affair, more of a splattering affair.

Cheers

If you think of 'spray', in the traditional sense, as a fine mist (like spray paint), you'll find FF ain't that! I'd describe it as more of a 'spit and sputter' of large 'droplets'.
Cottage cheese in a can!:LOL:
