Would cosmoline work as bullet lube? Remington once used cosmoline on the Kleenbore 22 LR as lube.

Wonder how they determined it was cosmoline,  Most 22 ammo seems to be some waxy substance.  I think 70 year old cosmoline  would be a lot harder than what they are showing,  Also the Kleenbore priming removed potassium chlorate, not mercury.

Same here Rich, I found nothing in the video to be truthful. He is not very knowledgeable.

I agree with Ric,

The only statement that is true is "U" is for Union Metallic Cartridge".

The rest is up to discussion and cosmoline is not paraffin wax.
