    There is something about handling those brown sticks of boolit lube that just makes me happy. Yes, there are other lubes that work, but a stack of 30 cal rifle boolits just seem to be decorated properly with that in the grooves and a shiney gas check. Am I nuts?

    I bought so much of it premixed years ago when one supplier was shutting down, that I'll probably never use it all up. I also have a lot of the ingredients. It has always worked well regardless of temperature. The only downside is smoke, but that is less at higher temperatures.

    What do you use for BP? Do you use the same for a greese cookie?

    Thanks
