For those of you who aren't familiar with Ballistol.  It's something that we use here at Reliable Gun almost religously.  It's quite easily our favorite CLP that we use anywhere from cleaning and lubricating our guns to treating wood stocks, adding a protective layer before or after the hunt or even Dave the middle generation of Mathiesons that has owned and operated the shop uses it on his hands during the winter to prevent cracking. 

Here's a brief history from Ballistol themselves:

"At the turn of the 20th century, the German Imperial Army began looking for a multipurpose oil that could be used to clean and maintain the metallic parts of a rifle, while also protecting its wooden stock and a soldier’s leather gear.  To develop this oil, the Army contracted with Friedrich Klever and his son Dr. Helmut Klever, a professor of chemistry at the Technical University of Karlsruhe.

In 1904, Dr. Helmut Klever succeeded in producing the special compound, which he named “Ballistol” (from the words “ballistic” and “oleum”, the Latin word for “oil”).  It soon became obvious that this new “ballistic oil” had truly amazing capabilities, and in 1905 the Imperial Army tested and adopted Ballistol, which stayed in use until 1945.  By then, however, word had spread and within a decade, hunters, boaters, hikers, and outdoorsmen in Germany, Austria and Switzerland had converted to using this new “miracle oil.”"
