Don't rule out Marine grease.

I use the Super Tech (Walmart) brand on my U.S. RIFLE CAL. .30 M1's.

I also run a jagged patch of grease down all my bores and wipe down the metal when I put my long guns up for the Season.

Sometimes they end up sitting for years.

It's only a few dollars ($5.00, I think) for three little tubes or one big one, and because it is Marine grease, it is very sticky so it films really well and is also loaded w/ industrial rust and corrosion inhibitors.

And because it's grease, it doesn't evaporate away.

Cleans off easily w/ CLP or Hoppe's and a rag or patch, although a little residue is OK too as it provides added protection from the elements in the field.

Highly recommend it.
