For an excellent light grease use Lubriplate "SFL" NLGI #0. It is better than most others for lubricity and protection against corrosion. If you live in an area where the temps are very high you can use
Lubriplate "SFL" NLGI #1. The 14 oz. can will last a lifetime.
I consider ease of use more important than the grease. I've use one tube of Shooters Choice (red grease in a syringe) for 50 years and might be on the second tube of it....but I don't shoot anything auto but .22 pistols so don't need much grease.
I use Lubriplate as steady rest lube on the lathe.
