Default Ballistol

Wondering if anyone uses Ballistol at all for gun maintenance and cleaning? I enter about every gun related contest that I see on social media and elsewhere. I actually ended up winning $40 worth of Ballistol products the other day and it should be here at the house any day now.

I mostly use Shooters Choice or Clenzoil for most of my cleaning. Always willing to try something new, especially if it's free.

I've never used it myself, but I don't recall every hearing anything negative about it.
