Bullet/Patch Lube
 
There are lots of bullet lubes out there and many folks make their own. I have done both with mixed results. My latest concoction is described below:

I got two tubes of Blue/Gray bullet lube a while back and noticed it was "soft." I mixed/melted in the microwave the Blue/Gray and a pound of Crisco. The result was a "Soft" bullet lube even too soft in 55 degree weather. I looked in my stash and found a large block of Beeswax about 12" wide, 18" long and 3" thick. I broke off about a pound of the BW and melted all the stuff together in a large plastic tub. Happily the result was a Firm Lube even in 75 degree weather.

Further testing will ensue.

Is this for lubing bullets when sizing or Black Powder stuff?

skeet,

This is for black powder maxis, minis and roundball patches.
