What is typically used when packing wheel bearings? I pulled the bogie hubs to replace bogie hubs to replace studs. Looks like gear oil?

I use 80W90, which is what I run in the differential. Then I top off with Powerpunch. It's a good product and is easy to carry and use. In the one quart squeeze bottle. Back when I ran 2 strokes, it was also an emergency back up fix to prime the fuel system too. The nipple is just right to fit into the fuel lines.
