    All I use for fluxing is candle wax. Most dollar stores sell candles cheap. Or if you go to church and they use candles during the service, they would probley give you the old used candles. I find mine mostly at yard sales. webfoot10

    I use 24 grs, of AA2520 under the NOE 311299 bullet, sized to .311 gas checked with a pinch of dacron on the powder, Gives about 1800 fps. Nice accurate load in my old Savage 340/30/30. I find that AA2520 is like a ball version of 4895. Found...

    Just go on-line or to a gun show and buy some of the metal solvent containers that come with the russian 91/30 or SKS and AK47 rifles. Cheap and don't leak. webfoot10

    Venison tallow on patched roundballs in a loading block. I used this in a 20 ga smoothbore at a frozentoe event in CT. 20 shots and did not swabe between shots. Venison or mutton tallow works well in cold weather.
