"Never leave any solvent or put any lubricant inside the firing pin channel or magazine tube. Along with the breech face and barrel chamber, these areas should be wiped dry before reassembly or use. Leaving solvent or lubricant in any of these areas may cause contamination of primers or powder and possible failure to fire."
Sounds like an umbrella cya. It is certainly true if you douse the firing pin channel with dripping lubricant. I would assume an average person have more common sense than that, but a lawyered mfgr with big pocket can't make the same assumption.
Frog lube I use, is not a low viscosity item that can find its way into a cartridge. Lightly rub the paste on metal surface, heat it with a hair dryer, soak off the excess. When cooled, it'd paste up again. Really slick, I'd name it the Willie Clinton treatment. Carbon deposit mixed in Frog lube is far easier to clean than dried up gunk in the channel. Pressured can cleaner will blow it clean. FWIW.
