X2... I did it every time I went on a super cold hunt, like Elk in the high country. Will keep the bolt and trigger from freezing up from the old oil from gunking up in the cold. I always used the dry lube teflon spray to follow up. might not hurt to put the bolt and trigger in the Oven for a short while "ON LOW" with the "DOOR OPEN" to make sure all H2O is out. Or just use a hair dryer... People in Alaska have been doing this for over 100years.
