I must have read fifty different authors and digested their loads.
My cap and ball revolver and my Baker don't need lube (I lube the Baker patches with bought stuff) My .45 long colt bullets get done in my Lyman lube-sizer. No chemistry or alchemy needed there.
I settled on 70% pure bees-wax (a friend keeps bees) 29% beef dripping an 1% green candle wax (because it was in the saucepan last used to make candles)
First thoughts are that it looks very hard.
Now, which method to chose. In a pan - need to make a lube cutter (currently in the lathe under construction)
Make a box to keep the ammo in - made the box - ding! little light comes on, I could bottom fill the Minnie cavity and then dip. Which is what I did.
Now - Devon and Cornwall Police, kindly get your arses into gear and send me my certificate - I neeeeeeeeed to shoot my gun!
Still in the tray!
I really would like to read your comments I am a true black powder lube novice.
