Yes, I'm new so bear with me.

I'd like to read pros and cons about using graphite for a gun lubricant

My pros:
It's slick and dry.
It won't gum up with burnt powder.
It won't evaporate or thin out with heat.
It won't drain or migrate.
It won't wear out.
A five-cent pencil should last a lifetime.

My cons:
It won't cushion a blow.
It won't penetrate.
Will it preserve?

Where should it be used?
Where should it not be used?

Talk to me.
