WST Equivalent

Post by tceva on 8/6/2018, 4:09 am

Yesterday I had a revelation about cleaning up my act.  What would be the WST equivalent to 3.9g of Bullseye?
Thanks in advance

Or 4.2, since 3.5 Bullseye equals about 3.8 of WST.  Either should work.

I did exactly what you're contemplating.  4.1 works great and I clean my gun twice a year now, whether it needs it or not.

I recently put a 9000sc dot on my 45.  The front glass needs to be cleaned every 100+/- rounds or so.  I was afraid it would be damaged after multiple cleanings.  Thanks for all the responses.

did you put oil or grease/lube on the barrel bushing?

Yes I do Chris, a drop of amsoil.  I see your point, kind of a trade off.  Indoors it's not so bad, with the air flow the way it is.  Is there something better to lube it with?

Had same problem.. was oil on barrel/bushing not powder. Use tw25b or axle grease and you can go back to all our favorite powder bullseye! As far as AMS oil goes, i think i like it...but waiting on a phone call from the marketing guy.

Sorry for being illiterate, but how does oiling the bushing/barrel contact area (which I do with FP10) prevent unburnt Bullseye powder from accumulating on the scope lens (which it still does)?  Or am I totally not getting Chris' point?

p.s. I shoot an Accuracy X and per Steve Huff, grease is a no-no on his guns.

a lot/most/all of whats getting on the lens is oil not the powder.

Thanks for the clarification Chris.  I guess in my case it is 'some' since I did not notice this issue until I switched from N310 to Bullseye and what I see is the 'pepper' specks.  But I will take a closer look for oil buildup.

If I could hijack for just a second.  I shoot 4.0 BE and would like to try wst.  ANy suggestions?  Also, loads listed above? Are they for a slide mounted dot?  I use a slide mounted 9000 S.C. and 11 lb spring.

4.0 to 4.2.  WST is just a tad slower than Bullseye.
