    Lamar, I'm going to stick Brad's "FIT" thread link here for future reference, it ties right in with the lube discussion and we know that poor fit is the unseen enemy of lube and everything else.

    Any new guys that want to know more about leading, lube, and accuracy and the one thing it all relates to, check it out:

    One can anoint the bore with mos2 (trade name Molyslide) by Neco to eliminate the wild first shots, what is happening is that the first shot on the clean bore is a bunch faster so it is out of the group.

    umm no you still have lube fouing to deal with.
    however one of my best lubes that eliminates/cuts down on first shot flyers does have moly in it.
    one of the better efforts we have come up with is also a reduction of the powder by 4-5% to make the first shot throw itself into the group from a fouled barell.

    i think jaxketed don't have this issue as much because the fouling it deals with is dry so it doesn't change over short periods of time.

    The other thing jaxketed has is GILDING METAL, which is alloyed to be self-lubricating against steel.

    hey, i'm working on a book here
    it might seem a little overdone these last few links.
    but it IS what matters.
    you can get away with some other stuff that's wrong, but if you get this right it is like a bandaid.
    it helps hold things together untill you find the antibiotic.

    Hello, and very interesting posts! I haven't seen synthetic spermaceti wax mentioned..I used to buy coffee can quantities from Charlie Dell when he came up to our MI schuetzen shoots..haven't been able to find anything smaller than a 50# drum..group buy? I did send for a free sample from Ross waxes..but the stuff has consistancy of rendered mutton tallow..mixed up some in same proportions as Dell's synthetic..and much softer..even softer than SPG..I hardened it up with B.W. & carnauba but will have to wait till Spring for testing.
    I have noticed when shooting cast in a Shillen barreled Hornet, the lube star is very small to non-existant..and seems to remain so. I am using Lyman Super Moly and a Leeth custom nose-pour 55gr.
    This home-brew lube mixing is addicting! The main enemy for me is time..not enough of it to try everything I would like!

    Isn't Cetyl Esters NF what's called "synthetic spermaceti wax" these days? I haven't messed with it myself but it has been used to good effect by others.

    Playing with neck tension can make a big diffrence in how a load performs. Bushing dies are great for this. I havent used an expander ball in years as I feel the do more harm than good. Id rather match a bushing to the cases wall thickness and do it right the first time rather than do it small and fix it on the way out.
    Uniformity of flash holes can make a slight improvement in a load.
    Having a "plan" to work up a load makes things go much easier
    Patience with all the steps and what you are doing at the moment.
    Most guns will out shoot their owners if things are done correctly. Not just in loading but including follow thru trigger control bench teqnique recoil control cleaning. The handling of a firearm off the bench isnt always the same from rifle types or diffrent calibers.
