    Few if any lube jacketed bullets!
    I have tried hBN dry and it works as advertised.

    Most lube recipes are simmilar to that. Curious little bit of intrigued by this. Didnt think anyone actually patented a recipe. Does anyone have any experience with silicon oil?

    Gads. Patents were supposed to be unique. People tried to patent the water bed every couple of years and the patent department referred them to Robert Heinlein's Beyond This Horizon (1942)

    Thats the part that caught my eye (aside from the fact that someone patented it). I've been wondering if some of the temp-range problems couldn't be solved with a silicone oil, the patent what searching "silicone oil bullet lube" brought up.

    It appears to be an application, not a patent. You would have to check further to see if the patent was actually granted, but I doubt it.

    You're right, its an abandoned application, didn't even notice that. The same inventor actually had a similar patent granted in the 1980s: https://patentimages.storage.googlea.../US4731189.pdf

    You can patent about anything but try to enforce it? Many patents are merely a method of extracting $$ from competition or just people doing what they do. This one would not stand up in any court but would garner some cash from a desist or pay letter.
    Whatever!
