    Hoppe's No. 9

    Was running low on on the old tried and true Hoppe's No. 9. Picked up a couple things from Wally world this morning. Last thing I grab before I head to check out was what looked like my usual Hoppe's. Turns out to be the synthetic version. Didn't notice until I get home to do some cleaning. So now I'm mad at myself for being a bone head and not reading the label. But then I think,well it looked exactly the same. So I used it anyway. I figured they wouldn't put out junk,right? Well first, it doesn't smell the same. But all that really matters is that it works. I had only run a couple rounds through my Gen3 G27 to test some ammo. So it wasn't a good test of the synthetic stuff because the Gen 3 barrels have always cleaned way easier than say the S&W M&P barrels I own. Does anyone have enough time using the synthetic to give a thumbs up? Or should I just put that under "read the label next time" and learn my lesson?

    I bought a bottle a few years ago, used it a few times, wasn't impressed and never tried it again. I may or may not have given it a fair trial.

    Thanks for the warning as I had no idea they have a new formula available. Its the smell that melts the goo. True story.

    Thanks for posting, I'll have to make sure I check the label out next time I need some.

    I saw it last time I purchased some Hoppes. If I recall it was a good bit more expensive (?)

    Seriously! There's plenty of room on the label. Why not call it Hoppe's #10 and change the color?
    Warning! Driver carries MORE than $20 in ammunition.

    Every time I open a bottle of Hoppe's #9, that smell takes me back to when I was a kid, watching my dad and my older brother clean the guns, and later, when I was old enough to clean my own guns.

    I'm still mad that I can't find it in the glass bottles anymore.
    No matter how cynical you become, it's never enough to keep up.

    Same with Original Skittles. 2010 green Original Skittles were lime flavored. 2019 green "Original" Skittles are green apple. How can they still be "original" if the flavors changed?

    I'm going to put it to the test soon. The Wolf 9mm ammo is the dirtiest I have. A couple hundred rounds of that through my FNS 9 barrel should fun to clean.
