The late Dr. Oscar Gaddy used motor oil or Linseed oil. He also used. I have used both in redoing barrels and I like the linseed oil better, it lasts longer.
I gently heat the barrels and then with a cleaning patch with a few large drops of oil, coat the barrels and let them sit for a full day.
This goes for both steel and Damascus barrels.
