At any rate, too little lube is FAR, FAR more likely to be a problem than too much. If somebody doesn't know how much to use, tell them to err on the side of too much/lots. The BCG is better off dripping wet than dry or even damp/moist.
I've personally had problems with too much lube. Ft Sill Oklahoma. Red clay dried to a fine powder. Stick and clumps to any moisture. All kinds of havoc ensues.
