I made more Ben's Red today.
The usual formula :
30% Red, Tacky Lucas High Temp Grease
10% Johnson's Paste Wax
5% Dexron II or Dexron III Trans. Fluid
5% STP Oil Treatment
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MIX THESE INGREDIENTS TOGETHER INSIDE YOUR HOME !
Here is the Lucas Red and Tacky about to be melted :
Once all the components above are melted and mixed together, they were poured into a silicon baking pan.
When the lube reached room temp., I moved the silicon baking pan to the deep freezer for 1 hour.
The Ben's Red lube ingots came out of the mold with no problems at all :

Considering the continued rising cost of bullet lubes at MidWay,see link below:
This lube that I made today will provide a lot of clean & accurate cast bullet shooting for me for many months to come.
I melt my lube and pour it into my lube sizers. These lube ingots can be cut easily with a utility knife and added to my lube pouring " soup can ".
Please watch the You Tube video of liquid lube being poured into my two lube sizers.
