    Was there Grease that had grit added to it to help keep tubes from coming loose?

    I've been around a lot of grease over the years but nothing like Gritty Grease. I would have figured if it's grease it better be just that, greasy.

    It is actually anti-seize grease like posted above. While it prevents stuck chokes to a point, it also creates some friction to hold the chokes in.

    Thanks Wadhopper.
    Will give that a try.

    For some reason I thought Briley was coming out with a new grease that had a pumice grit added I must have imagined it.

    Nah, no need. Just check your chokes after every round (which you should be doing anyway).

    Maybe it's me, but most choke grease seems to have a higher viscosity anyway, which helps to keep the things in place.

    Try Door Ease stick lube. Just rub a heavy coat on the part of the choke tube that fits in the barrel including threads and you won't need to worry about them coming loose or seizing. No need for grit.

    I don't have any problems with my Pgun chokes coming loose but on my Browning field gun I use Teflon plumbers tape to keep the choke tube tight.

    Lube chokes with nickel anti-seize (dark gray stuff)... made specially for carbon steel/stainless steel connections... not the silver stuff made of aluminum powder. Keeps'em tight!

    I use white (food grade) never-seez, it is a vegetable base, has no solids. I spent 37 years as a machinist in the film industry rebuilding stainless steel and titanium coating hoppers. Never had a stuck or stripped bolt or screw. Use it on my inv-plus tubes, snug them and never have a issue with them coming loose or getting stuck. I would never use a grease with solids in it on such fine threads.

    A couple of drops of clean oil and check while moving from post to post.

    Clean at least every other week of shooting.

    Ditto...that's all I do is clean them up and put a drop of oil on them and hand tighten.

    Birchwood Casey choke tube stuff is really good. I also put a very thin coating all over choke to prevent anything sticking to them, powder residue, rusting etc. clean up like new. I do mine every 200 rounds. Hand tighten of course

    I use slip 2000 choke tube grease. Works well, doesn't load up with fouling.
