I have. I have no proof that it's better than not using it, but it certainly didn't hurt anything. I think it does help a bit, for awhile. But you have to apply it after every day of use, more than that if you should happen to have a barrel break or chop.

Just make sure you don't clog it in the bore and apply it unevenly. I use shotgun swabs for applying and buffing it off.

It's very temporary....my advice.....get a marker that doesn't break paint and don't get too stingy on the paint!
