Default Mixing lube

Hello all.

Last night was a gun cleaning night for me. When finished with cleaning, I will typically lubricate with either "Formula 3" or Birchwood Casey "Barricade" depending upon the gun.

One gun I cleaned last night was a Ruger 10/22. On finishing I put an oiled patch for Formula 3 down the barrel and B/C Barricade on the moving parts of the action and trigger assembly.

Does anyone know of a problem in doing this? I wiped down the excess of both lubricants so there was only a "lite coating" remaining.

But I could not help but wonder is there a problem with using two different lubricants at the same time on the same gun?

Thanks again for all your help.

I wouldn't worry about it, I do it all the time. My 22 auto's get Tetra gun grease in the actions. If you ever get a chance to try it, give it a go. This grease actually works best when you rub it in then wipe it off. It leaves a residue that not only works great but without an oily film the action doesn't gum up with unburnt powder.
