Barricade In A Muzzleloader?

The only thing I still battle is finding the "best" patch lube. (As I've gone back to shooting patched round ball.) Bore Butter and Crisco tend to turn to glue in colder temperatures while "moose milk" type products tend to dry out (the alcohol evaporates) in the bore the longer the hunt lasts. Ideally, it would be something that is pasty, yet snotty, that has a very low freeze point. I just haven't found it yet.
For what it's worth, I have read of individuals using Barricade in their muzzleloaders though I've never done so myself.
Cayugad will likely be along shortly and turn everything I said on its side, but that's okay. The man knows of what he speaks. One would be wise to heed his words.

I used to use bore butter. I had problems. An old fellow that taught me tons about Muzzleloaders found out I was using the bore butter and told me that it was the problem. I removed it, and never looked back. I clean my rifles and then coat the bore with a quality gun oil. Just remember to remove that oil before you load.
The main thing is use what you feel confident with. Develop a routine for protecting your rifles and follow it. If you want to wax your rifle's bore I have no problem with that. After all, it is your rifle and not mine.
