Are silicon gun wipes appropriate for cleaning and preventing corrosion on cartridges?
I know that the wipes do bring up old grubby cartridges quite nicely but does it have any long term effect?
It doesn’t polish them but keeps the ‘aged’ patina and seems to protect from general staining from handling cartridges. Obviously it is best to keep away from paper patched projectiles and card/paper shells but what about primer annulus and case mouth seals, case colours, coloured tips and plastic cartridges/tips? Will it damage them?
I know that the Remington branded ‘RemWipes’ have a distillate product in them and are flammable so I wouldnt put them anywhere near cartridges but a lot of others seem to just be the silicon.
I have read quite a few different accounts on care for collections but never seen these silicon based products mentioned.
