I went to a local gun shop looking for Gunslick, that graphite stuff, and ended up buying a nice grease. Anyway, this guy that worked there gave me a bottle of Hoppes Powdered Teflon.
Is there a good use for this in a FAL or any other gun for that matter? Ive never heard of this before so any help is greatly appreciated. :)

I found some messages on the web where a guy talked about using powdered teflon on the knuckles of a grand piano. So check your FAL for anything that looks like the knuckle of a grand piano, and apply the teflon powder there liberally. :p

But I think it's probably used where you would otherwise use graphite. No instructions on the package?
