Bisley45: Some use Carter's comp spray (available from Brownell's) and others use welder's anti-splatter (available at weldingshops, farm supply and hardware stores.

And some of us don't use anything.

I just lightly spray with WD-40 after shooting and wipe off the inside and outside of the comp.

I only shoot Federal Red Eagle JHP's which are very clean, reliable and feed in any .45 gun I have and results in very little residue.

More expensive ammo than some, but I don't have the opportunity to shoot so much that the incremental cost is an issue.

Use MPL and a tooth brush. (At least I think that is what it's called. I have some out in the shop, but I'm too lazy to get out there now) Anyway, works real good! However, DON'T let this stuff touch your wood. Can ruin the finish.
