    Home made lubes above 2000fps

    Are there any home made lube recipes that will come close to the performance of LBT Blue, at 2000fps and above?

    I use 1:4 ATF and beeswax at 2200 fps in my Garand, no issues.

    1:5 STP and beeswax works too, but the ATF is much easier to mix.

    I started with Bens Red it works great and i launch my bullets at about 2050 fps. Is not the best choice for hot climates. Can through flyers above 90*F. I started playing with SL-68B and it working good in my hot climate and i want to try SL-71. Two coats of 45/45/10 was woking good at 1800FPS surprisingly.
