I donít think itís a good idea. It has pine pitch, which is a resin, in it. It could leave a hard, varnish residue inside the bore.

It also has mink oil, which by itself, is great for a patch lube. I use pure bear oil for hunting patches. Works great in any weather. Lubes with wax get too stiff in cold weather.
