Petroleum based or not?
Can it be used with Black Powder without tarring up?
Will it do with water to make "moose milk"
Any info appreciated.

Youngs .303 has been the standard cleaning/lubricating fluid for ever in the U.K. & I recently found some here in the U.S. & was wondering if I could use it in a way similar to ballistol for black powder.
Its some kind of water-soluble oil that has an odd & unique smell as well as some other slightly odd properties.


Oh No!
It's "New & Improved" I'm soooo screwed.Confused
