    Here's my latest. For my own use, it has replaced the concoction in my previous post (#165), as it is cleaner to handle and works quite well:

    Bullet Lube #2
    8 oz Japan wax - melt, then add
    12cc of carnauba wax flakes (4 cc Lee dipper X3), melt,stir, add
    150 ml of Lubriplate synthetic worm gear oil, stir, add
    32 cc of cetyl alcohol flakes (4cc Lee dipper X8), melt,stir

    pour into lubesizer, store excess in paper hot cups

    This is roughly:

    63% Japan wax (the carrier)
    31% worm gear oil (the lube)
    2% carnauba wax
    4% cetyl alcohol (a surfactant, to help the mix)



    The Lubriplate worm gear oil is PAO based, ISO 460 (SAE140).

    Best regards, and good shooting! Bill

    Lithium - Beeswax Lube
    Garth Choate made and sold this lube in the 1970's , he was kind enough to give me the recipe.
    I have never had a leading problem when used with handgun or moderate rifle loads.
    After trying many , this one is still my favorite.

    3 parts beeswax
    1 part lithium grease ( I use Lucas Red-N-Tacky ) Garth didn't specify a brand.
    Melt the wax first and then add the grease and heat very slowly, or the wax will start burning and is hard to put out.
    Make it outside and have a couple of fire extinguishers handy.

    Thanks Garth,

    Hi guys what's wrong with Carnauba Red wax? I see many use only beeswax because it is cheaper or what else? I use only CR wax with no add-ons.
    Reload them all!
