Anyway thanks for the info. I prefer getting the facts straight from the horses mouth, if you know what I mean. I'll be sure and post how things work out
    I get what I can when I can.

    I think we all do that !

    Regarding BLL 2.0 , would Naphtha or xylene work instead on MS in high humidity area's to help with the drying ??

    My Ace Hardware store has a product called Naphtha V?? Will it work or is it different?

    I'm not familiar with that one.
    Maybe someone else will step in here that is knowledgeable.

    I'm using Klean Strips VM&P Naptha from Ace to dissolve the paste wax. Seems to be working well so far.

    JUST ASKING...........

    Since SCJOSNBW is out of production and we're forced to find a substitute, is it time to start a new thread about BLL ver. 2.0?

    I'm confused, not an uncommon occurence. Due to my ADD I find reading all 64 pages daunting. So far BLL is a 60/40 mixture of LLA and johnson's liquid wax which is no longer available. Is this correct? Can someone give me the current correct mixture for this liquid lube using LLA. I would really appreciate it.

    In Sept. of 1016, it appears Ben updated it to: 30% LLA or Xlox /30% Lundmark Liquid Wax /40% Mineral spirits (or naptha). Pour together & shake, no heating required. Sure works nice for my 45 ACP and 9mm boolits.

    Should have bought all 3. Sold one for enough to pay for the other two.

    PC is faster :-)

    Same for second coat only more drying periods with frequent swirls.

    3rd coat I drop into a bankers box lid with plain computer printer paper. It is surprising how slow the paper is to soak up.

    My eye's glance at PC threads and I shrug and move on past.
    Why bother, this is so simple and easy. Not to mention low cost.
    Hi, not bashing this awesome new lube, however I can honestly say powder coating is faster! Shocking, right?

    According to your method you put 3 coats and each time you have to swirl and let it dry, but after 2nd coat you need more swirling and more drying time, so how long does it take for 3 coats - 30 - 40 min? Overnight?

    Now let me describe my PC method. I preheat about 150-200 .357 bullets for 5 minutes at 150 degrees in a toaster oven that's old and dedicated to this process, I take them out and dump them in rectangular Tupperware container that has couple tablespoons of powder, I swirl and tumble for 1-2 minutes than I pour out in to mesh container shake off excess powder which goes back in to the earlier container and I bake them for 10 minutes at 400 degrees, after that I dump them in to water - done in less than 20 min! No tackiness whatsoever, no exposed lead, no gumming up seating die and of course no leading! Very low cost too, about 6 dollars a pound for powder, takes very little to coat, excess powder is reused. Once again I am not bashing BLL, I want to try it too, my problem - I can't find any liquid Johnson One step for reasonable price (I am not paying $100 for one bottle). If I read this thread a year ago, I would have been in luck, especially when people snagged it at discounted prices. EDIT: forgot to mention 2nd most important advantage for me - no smoke!
