    LUBE Auction

    I am new to this so please bear with me. I mixed up about 5 years supply of Lube: 65% Beeswax; 33% High Pressure Moly/Lithium Grease; 2% Carnuba Wax (by weight) and would like to auction off 1# lots. Lets try one lot and see how it does. Auction ends on 4/30/2012 at MN based on the time stamp of your bid. I will cover shipping and I EXPECT feed back on the lube's performance. Shipping after confirmation of funds received by 45nut. I hope this goes over well. PM me if you have any other questions.

    Thank You. Tell your friends. This recipe is used by my father-in-law for his pistol boolits since the late 1950's with no issues below 950 FPS.

    I'll go $10.00. It will cost you 2-3-5 dollars to ship and I canNOT see a benefit bringing in less than shipping costs. (Not intended as an insult to mktacop, thanks for the bid)

    I'd bet with proper sizing there would be no problems before about 1500FPS (or higher).

    I have not used it faster than 950 fps and my bores are bright and unleaded, even before 'unleaded' was popular. Thank you for the support Mr "Bob" ( sorry, I have a little trouble pronouncing your last name correctly).

    Thank you all. I am headed out of town for a week so I will check back when I return. Remember this is to keep this site healthy and you get some fun test driving this lube. I am glad that it is finding a home. DRNurse1

    this lube will go to rifle speeds no problem.
    it may be a bit on the hard side, so you might need a heater.
    it can be easily softened too.
    but 950 is in no way gonna be it's limit.
    it's all an educated guess,,,, till the trigger is pulled.

    the more i find out about shootin boolits, the more it contradicts everything i ever learned about shooting jaxketed.

    David,I am very honored by your offer/suggestion. B-b-b-b-but, I have no lubrisizer, I have not fired or loaded a firearm for nearly three years.

    I tumble lubed or pan lubed when I was loading. I will be loading and shooting when I get relocated - hopefully to Missouri later this year or maybe not even until next year.

    I spend my time and support here 'cause it's the only way I can the keep in practice - even if it's only in my mind.

    I also do not have the ability to generate results of the lube's performance.

    Were I the high bidder, I would have found someone to give the lube to for useage and for testing.

    Four hours or so left. I will ship a pound to the first five folks who donate the equivalent of the high bid to this site. Time stamps for the replies will determine the lucky few, and I shall try to mix more appropriate quantities in the future. Thanks for your attention to this auction.

    Mr Krack does not appear to want this much lube so I will offer him a couple of sticks if he wants to distribute it to his friends and PM's me with his shipping information.

    Also, I can send a pound of this fine lube out to the first five of you to PM me your shipping information and to send $20 to Willy Snyder at:
