I’ve been using Ballistol for years to clean muzzleloaders. Before I became aquatinted with it, I used hot soapy water like everyone else used to. It’s worked great for me until just recently. I just received a new fowler. After the first cleaning session I noticed that my hands were covered with the stain from the stock after rubbing it down with Ballistol. I’ve never had this happen before on any other muzzleloaders I’ve had. When I emailed the builder they said that Ballistol was never intended for use with traditional gun stocks…. They said that it is only ok to use on poly based finishes. I’ve used it before on other flintlocks they’ve built and never had a problem. Anyone out there ever had this problem?
