Happy Easter all,
I'm new to BP guns, and I'm currently building a Kentucky Longrifle, 42" bbl, .50 caliber. I have the ball and patch I need, but I don't yet have a proper lube. I've done a search and read through the list, but I'm still a bit lost regarding the application of lubes, i.e. conical vs. ball patch.
What kind of lube is best for this kind of rifle? I've seen people just use spit, and other people use unknown lubricants. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
