I use an H-D ® grease tube (99856-92) in a Lincoln ® pistol-grip gun. I found that forcing the grease through a zerk fitting, and onto a scale, required 33 trigger pulls to squirt out 1 oz. (as required by the H-D ® service manual). It's blue, it's sticky, and H-D ® grease doesn't have the sulphur reek that most grease has.
