Well, everyone is well lubed it appears ! No failures for lack of lube so what ever is "BEST" remains opinion. Fine but do look at what the military does for the AR platform and consider using their choice of lube. If nothing else, they chose the minimum product.

As to AR bolts, I run them wet..well lubed in LSA (when I could get it) and with Break Free CLP. That has been a trustworthy approach that I did put my life upon and never found that decision wanting.

If you shoot 20 each 30 RD MAGS and during the process (can be over several days, not a gut check of blasting all that ammo in one hour) do not clean the rifle, and your rifle is operational and trustworthy.....probably the lube and operator maintenance on your part is perfectly fine for civilian life. I doubt any of us will see a scenario for 600 rds fired in anger. If for any reason your rifle, mags, ammo can't go 600 rds without a flop...you got some serious trouble shooting ahead.

Best thing about Mobil 1 - it is CHEAP.

And readily available.

Also, I remember a number of years ago (90s??) that I heard (used to shoot USPSA at Quantico), that the USMC rifle team had stopped using any lube with Teflon in it, as they found excessive wear from using them.

DuPont does NOT certify or recommend Teflon in a use in suspension.

The LSA I have was made in Germany. It seems to work great. I have 2.5 quarts of it left. Life time's supply. It's great stuff.
