    I can't speak to the original BLL, having never used it. I never got the chance to purchase any of the magic Johnson's mixture prior to it being discontinued.
    The BLL#2 that I use, the one with the Lundmark wax, works just as well as 45/45/10. At least, it does in the applications I have tried - mostly handgun up to about 1300fps.

    I will say that BLL is easier to make, if only because there is no heating of the wax to render it down. The two lubes (45/45/10 & BLL) are very similar, but the BLL remains a liquid while the 45/45/10 turns pasty.

    "Guys that work behind the counter in gun shops are worst, because they want to sell more lube.."

    Your not nuts, you just work in a lot bigger quantity's than some of us do.

    A big batch for me is 100 bullets. And I count drops. And swirl, and judge.

    A little too thin = more drops.

    A little too yellow = cut it way down next time.

    First coat IMO should look evenly lightly "fuzzy" but silver yet.
    Second coat should look quite fuzzy with perhaps the lightest tint of amber.

    Third coat you should see color on 4 out of 5 bullets. But even, smooth.

    I hate writing but I need to start taking notes.

    I also need to shoot more.

    I don't blame the LGS for wanting to sell more lube.
    I don't expect them to have the equivalent of a Masters degree in Casting, loading, and lube either.

    Would be nice however if they were smart enough and wise enough to tell them when THEY are in the presence of a Master. That they should talk less, and listen more.
