    Hi all,
    Was wondering if there is any odorless gun grease out there that anyone would recommend? Don't want oil......need a grease that is clear or opaque (would be ideal) Thanks!

    This is the best I have used. No smell and has a nice opalescent appearance that is clear when applied in a thin layer.

    Tinylo is right. I have used Super Lube for years...love it. It comes in tiny tubes, all the way up to large cans.

    p.s. Also, its the BEST collet lube available for MEC reloaders.

    Mark425,

    That's one tip I'll try ASAP!. (collet lube) I load for trap on 366's but for hunting I used a Mec sizemaster and lubing the collet with anti seize has alway's been a oain.

    Add one more for Super Lube...

    Tetralube is good too - you can find it at many gun shops. It has a mild, I'd say pleasant smell.

    "need a grease that is clear or opaque"
    Any grease will either be one or the other. I think you meant "translucent" instead of "opaque". (look up the definition of "opaque")

    A large tube of general purpose grease (89 cents at Wall Mart automotive section) will work as well as any other grease. A thin layer of this grease is translucent, a thicker layer is opaque. My guess is that a 12 inch tube should supply the gun needs of a typical shooter for around 15 years.
