    Yeah, the Batts seem to be worse about this. But it is possible to gall any big magnum if you let it get dirty and dry on the lugs. I learned long ago this is a simple routine we need to do often if we want to keep a high performance rifle like new. Only takes a minute or two.

    Ok, this is a home remedie. I mix a splash of diesel with a little ATF.

    I figured if it made my 22 run like a dream it was good enough for my bolt gun.

    In the past I have used high temp anti seize Disc brake caliper lube. Also high temp/disc brake wheel bearing grease with great results for the lugs. Lately I have been using Lubriplate, I take a small amount and mix in some powdered HBN and apply conservatively to the lugs, its been working very well.

    Slip 2000 makes a good and very thin oil I use on raceways of my rifles. A very light coat is all it takes. I've used it on Remington's, Panda's, Kelblys and on all of my bolt carriers in AR's. Works great hot or cold and on AR's it keeps carbon from building up. I'll check my stash tomorrow and get the exact product name for ya.

    Old discussion but wondering if anyone is using the Bore Tech extreme grease on bolt lugs?

    Jeff, have you thought of running powdered graphite lubricant on your bolt body and raceways?

    I'm surprised to see so many people running grease. I tried this a few times with a very light film on the lugs. I had the worst luck! maybe its due to such a dusty environment.

    I now run lucas gun oil and it runs good.

    I use to only run light oil, once you gall a set of lugs on a big magnum you get a bit paranoid. Thats why I now will only run extreme pressure lube on lugs. Keeping the rest of the bolt lubed with light oil is no problem. Or I like wiping it down with lighter fluid for the slick residue it leaves and no dust attracted

    A big magnum and Bat action will teach a lesson.

    Take a look at liberty lube. They have videos on testing they have done against other lubes on a friction machine and in extreme temps. It leaves very little residue that doesn't attract dust and your bolt feels like its riding on ball bearings. They also have an extreme performance grease for the lugs.
