I use the CLP for cleaning, and on occasion, the paste on my brushes when the bore is really dirty. Normally, I just use the paste as a lube when Im finished cleaning.
Im still on my first little tub of paste, but Ive been through quite a few of the 4 oz bottles of the CLP, and now just buy it in the 8oz bottles. At $25 a pop, its a bit cheaper, but its still pretty pricey compared to other cleaners.
