What do you guys use on the threads of your choke tubes? I currently have some Birchwood casey brand choke tube lube and I'm wondering if there's something better out there I should know about and use.

I use plain old "Red N Tacky" equipment grease.
Yep....me too... I'm not really picky about the brand, just whatever I happen to have on hand for the grease gun.

I've used everything from marine grade wheel bearing grease to red and tacky...it all works.

One time I was running late and in a hurry to get to the skeet range I used Penn reel grease just because it was laying there handy where I had cleaned up my fishing reels, lol.

250 rounds fired that day and the tubes came right out when I got home.

I've used anti seize grease on mine and haven't had any problems.

several years ago I got a tube of breach plug grease that came with my muzzle loader that I've been using on choke tubes without any issues.

I like Briley's Unilube Choke Tube Anti-Seize. If that isn't available to you just get a tube or can of anti-seize at your local auto supply. In a pinch, I've even used my wife's Coconut Oil. I try to always loosen my tube a half turn when I'm done shooting or before storing. NEVER use or leave them dry in your shotgun.
