I'm breaking in a Browning Silver Hunter in 20 gauge, and would appreciate any recommendations for lubing the moving parts in the receiver area. Right now I just lightly oil with a bit of BreakFree.

Shooting strictly factory loads, 2 3/4, for now, mostly skeet or sporting clays. I had one failure to eject today when the gun was cold. Maybe 2nd or 3rd shot of the day on the skeet range. This was from a box of Fiocchi "light recoil" #7 loads. Otherwise I love this shotgun and it runs fine. It has probably had 100 rounds through it so far, all factory loads but not the same brands.

Breakfree is probably fine. I use FP10 or Rem oil. Both seem to do the trick,

I'm using this stuff... Seems to work very well in everything I've tried it on.. My pumps and autos both like the stuff quite well..

I use Frog Lube on every one of my firearms.

I only use Slick 2000 EWL on all my guns. Thousands of rounds through my 930 with no malfunctions.
