How many rounds do you have through your firearms since using FL? What weapon and what conditions are you using them in? This is not a FL bashing thread so please don't post unrelated answers to ruin my thread. Thanks.:D

P89 5700
Sigma 600
SU-16 CA 3500
30-06 200

All of the SU and Sigma rounds are range rounds. I took the P89 to a 2 day defensive handgun class recently. Functioned perfectly without problems (It also has more than 5000 rounds pre-FL though it, for reference)
The .30-06 went hunting, successfully, without issues.

I have a new XD I'm starting on FL with a grand total of 100 shots through it so far.

Keeping my other hunting rifles on the same diet they've had for decades now, I may switch them to FL someday soon however.

My other pistols are still on whatever they were on when I put them in the safe last.

I have probably 8 friends who I've cooked most of their guns in FL for, totalling another 35-40 weapons. They've collectively shot probably another 25k rounds. No issues to speak of.

AR15 500 rounds
Hipoint 995ts About 600 rounds
Glock 19+ 300 rounds
Ruger SR9 300 rounds

Ar15 had a few hiccups at the start but that had more to do with the wrong buffer spring then anything else. after the buffer tube was fixed this thing runs like a champ.

995ts had had nothing but FL and i can only think of like 3 misfires tghe whole time i've had it. it's my beater gun and i treat it like **** and it always runs and runs and runs.

glock runs like a glock just fine
Ruger runs like a Ruger perfect.

M&P 9mm. Been using FL since new and about 600 rounds. Not a single misfire or jam.

To be honest, I don't think you can reliably assess a lube until you've shot a minimum of 1000 rounds with it.

The only two guns on my list I consider good reliable indicators are the P89 and the SU16, with which I've shot thousands of rounds with the stuff.

My XDM 9mm 4.5 barrel has about 3500 rounds thru it. Started it on FL at 2600 rounds and was on Hoppes before that. Nary a hiccup whatsoever.

My CZ P-01 has 1400 rounds thru it so far and has been on FL since brand new. Only one hiccup which was a failure to go into battery with bulk UMC ammo from Walmart during the first 250 rounds. Might have been a case of a week charge or limp wristing since I was decocking the gun with each shot for practice on the DA trigger. It has since fired the rest with no problem including doing a tactical handgun course with double taps, triples, failure drills, and continuous rapid fire with four full mags.:D:D
