I think you mean water mixable oil since oil by definition is not soluble in water and thus not water based.

So much fuss about nothing. If corrosive primers were so destructive then how come millions of rifles survived? Answer, Cleaning properly. I have shot tons of corrosive ammo, through my Mosins, Garands, Springfields, Mausers, FN's...never had a problem with salt corrosion. If you are so paranoid about your cleaning procedure, buy a can of USGI Rifle Bore Cleaner, Mil-C-372B, NSN 6850-224-6657, Haskon Inc, DSA 600-74-C-1254, 8 FL Oz....and use it as the millions of GI's have for the past 50+ years....my 8 oz can has lasted me 15 years plus. For info: I have seen ( and own) a British Enfield that the previous owner only cleaned with Hoppes, and only cleaned MAYBE once a year....when I purchased it it had a very fine coating of rust in the bore, ( I got it for $100 because of the " rusty bore"), I cleaned it up and it is still the most accurate bolt Mil surp I have and that's even with using the nasty surplus cordite rounds.
