What do people use for lube when reassembling their BP wheelguns?

I've been using a general "synthetic gun oil" and not sure it's the best thing.

I do use only a tiny bit.

I use a cotton cleaning patch and spread a thin film of Ballistol over the parts and surfaces of the revolver. I've noticed that I don't get gummed up black powder residue when I break down my revolvers and single shot pistols when cleaning them after a shooting session. Additionally, I've noticed that Ballistol is great for removing surface rust on new firearms when factory sprayed oils have failed during shipment. Also, it is safe on wood grips as it is a biodegradable product. Ballistol advertises their product for cleaning, lubrication and preserving and the product appears to live up to their claim. Click on the link Ballistol - The Original CLP - Cleans, Lubricates, Preserves and read the FAQ and uses. It's been around since 1904.
