I'm moving from Arizona, very low humidity to Sugar Land Texas with extraordinarily high humidity. So what will protect my guns and reloading tools from corrosion and rust? Google search results led to DIY_guy extensive evaluation. I found out that my personal favorite, Eezox was near the bottom for long term protection.

DIY_guy has posted on several sites his extensive evaluation of G96 synthetic CLP, Eezox gun care, M-Pro 7, Gun Slick, Breakfree, Frog Lube, Ballistol, Gunzilla, RIG #2, Birchwood Casey Barricade, Rem oil, Shooters Choice Rust Prevent, Strike Hold, Tuf Glide, Boeshield-9, Viking Tactics Rand CLP, Clenzoil, Quicken CLP, Slip 2000, Hornady One Shot, Militech-1, PB 50 Blaster, Weapon Shield, Rusteprufe, Hoppe’s (lots of Hoppe’s), Archoil AR4400, Ogre HP, Gibbs, Corrosion X, Kano Kroil, Silicone Grease, WD-40, ATF, Fluid Film, Max Professional, CRC 3-36, 3-in-One Oil, Pennzoil synthetic oil, Minwax paste wax, and Atsko silicone water guard spray.

To see the actual results pick one from this search:

Note some forums have all his results and some just the highlights.

I did my own testing and Mobil 1 synthetic and ATF fluid was a big fail.
Some people like engine oils though.
