Default Knight Breech Plug Grease Formula Change?

I've been using some olderKnight Breech Plug Grease thatis part #900026.The oldtube also says"with DuPont Teflon" and "Slick 50 Chemistry".
It's looksblack in color as if it has graphite in it, but I'm not sure of that.

The Knight website showsthe new tube withthe same part number butit doesn't have the samewriting on it aslistedin the quotation marks above.
Does anyone know if the grease in the new tube is the same breech plug grease or not? It is still mostly black in color?
I wonder why the picture of the new style tube on the Knight website doesn't have the same ingredients listed on the label? The product description only says that it has an "Anti-Seize Agent".
I'm looking for any info. fromanyone who hasused the Knight breech plug grease fromeither the oldor new style tube to help compare them.
I really do like the grease in the old tubes.

I bought some last year and it is greenish blue in color. It has worked fine for me.

That'sthe color thatmy old stufflooks like too. There's a yellowish grease mixed in with something blackish that gives itthat dark greenish color when strong light hits it.
So the grease sounds like it's the same but with a different label.
I'm concerned that when Knight is gone, their grease[supplies] will eventually all dry up. (pun intended! )
I don't want to switch grease but what other brands of breech plug grease are popular and as good as the Knight grease?
Since revolvers have 6 nipples per cylinder and I use it on them, when I find a good deal on some Knight grease I'll probably just stock up on it.

Try some Slick50 ONE grease. Good stuff. One tube should last you a while.

I have been looking for that slick 50 at every auto parts or big box store I've been in for the last 14 months and have yet to find it. I guess I'll order some online.

flounder, Look at your local Walmart if you have one. They are back in auto section. Look at the tubes that go into grease guns. I looked forever at Walmart until I discovered they was in a tube for a grease gun and not in a tub or smaller tube.
