Firepower FP-10™
Firearms & weapon systems lubricant, cleaner & preservative
Exceptional properties in an all-in-one firearms maintenance product
Firepower FP-10™ has been formulated with the serious shootist, soldier, law enforcement officer, sportsman and professional armorer in mind. The ultimate in total care and maintenance of firearms, weapons and weapons systems, FP-10 is able to clean, remove lead, lubricate, guard against extreme pressure and wear, plus protect from corrosion.

FP-10 contains MPC's MT-10 Metal Treatment™ in its formulation for improved lubricity and boundary film lubrication. This improves bore accuracies due to FP-10's unique metal-treating capabilities and the reduced coefficients of friction between the bullet surface and rifling lands of the barrel. This results in more linear bullet velocities and a more even distribution of chamber pressure during ignition and bullet flight within the bore. Improved accuracy is expressed in better average velocities, extreme spreads, standard deviations and bullet groupings. In addition, the reduced coefficients of friction mean reduced friction-related heat and wear, not only within the bore, but on all lubricated, moving metal parts of the weapon.

Is it true? I use the stuff and I was taught to clean the bore of all oils before shooting it.

Sure, for at least the first shot. After that, most oil is pretty much burned out of the bore.

no, as its burned off the velocity of the bullet will change and cause deviations from shot to shot.

same reason not to run anything with teflon though your bore.

No but it gets 100% of the ladies 60% of the time ;)

No comment. I've seen the inventor threaten legal action for guys that have disputed his claims online.

The inventor no longer has anything to do with FP10. They were bought out and the formulation was slightly changed. He now has a new company and product out called Weapon Shield. It is FP10 "improved.":cool:
