    Harlow's Pan Lubing

    I saw this on youtube and only saw a brief mention in the stickies. Has anyone actually used this lube? I just made a batch and it was slicker than a politician when warm.

    Very similar to Darr lube but with beeswax added. Lots of fellers use less (or none) STP. I prefer to heat my lube and bullets together to get both to same temperature so lube sticks to bullet better.

    I just made a batch of that too, it was my first pan lube i have ever tried.
    It seems to be just a little soft, how can i make it just a little harder?

    To harden it up, just add some bee's wax. You'll have to heat it up to blend it. BC
