    Thought that recipe calls for bee wax? 50/50 bee wax and Vaseline with teaspoon of lanolin. Add candle wax as necessary to bring up lube hardness. That's what I used in my pistols.

    Good deals are there. Just have to weed them out. I always put things in order of cheapest price including shipping. That puts the crooks on the last page. I just ordered my first lube sizer off there. A Lyman 45 in good shape. Seller says it works...

    Late 70's early 80's I noticed that my then favorite Rem .22lr in the clear yellow 100 round box were starting to gum up my mag's. I have not bought Remington ammo since. CCI, Winchester, Federal all seem mostly ok. Perhaps not quite what...
