It not the rimfire platform as a whole, but for specifically blow back action auto loaders.
The blow back action very nature is to dump powder fouling backwards into the action.
Mix liquid oil with the powder fouling dust and your making mud pies in the action.

Some liquid oils (M-Pro 7) have great shear strength, that is they resist parts sliding with this oil between them.
Now thicken the oil with fouling dust and you’ve just created a grease.
Grease are a wet liquid oil with a thickeners added.
Would you lube your auto loader with grease?

Try the Hornady One Shot it’s super slick and won’t make mud, you won’t go back to conventional wet oil in your auto loaders again.

Don’t use silicone sprays or any spray with Teflon dust in the product.
Teflon sprays are great for staining everything with a white dust, what a mess.

I've been using the Hornady One Shot for a little while now in all of my semi auto's both rifle & handgun ,rimfire & centerfire . It's rather expensive I think but it does seem to work well.

10/22 and glocks get hornady one shot.


Everything else gets slick 2000 EWL. I notice it stays in place and doesnt run like thinner oils. Also lubes well in extreme cold. Thin enough thick enough. Works well. In 10degree weather my bolt actions stay slick. Other oils freezes up like lard.

As a new shooter, I bought a Walmart universal kit with cleaner and lubricant. Then I read more and bought Hoppes 9. Saw hickok45 video and bought Ballistol. After reading this thread, Hornady One Shot is on it's way.

How would you use what I will have on hand?

You can still use the Hoppes and Ballistol for cleaning your barrels. Use One Shot for everything else.

Hornady Case Lube is specifically for reloaders prepping the outside of empty clean centerfire rifle or pistol cases just prior to resizing them in their resizing die.
Be careful not to get the two products confused.
