Silicone Grease for Orings
Heard there is some new grease for orings in the gun to make them last longer, anyone have comments?

I like a high temp synthetic grease that is also hydrophobic. I use one that is specifically designed for prop shafts and boat trailer bearings. We keep guns together for 9 months or more depending on the operator and as many as 25+ sets. This grease doesn't dry out and get cakey like some white lithiums do in the heat.

Randy, are you shooting open or closed cell? How round and consistent is the pattern? To shoot 25+ sets without pattern problems or screens getting plugged up seems a bit far fetched to me. I'd love to do that, but I'm to picky about pattern shape.

Randy I would like to know more about the grease that you use do you just put it on the seals or do you put it in the gun instead of white lithium grease
