    I haven't cast in a long while but just. And have only done it for muzzleoading and BPCR so I used SPG lube. I just ordered some Carnuba Red And Blue. Going to cast for .44 mag rifle and 45-70. Are these lubes good for these calibers?

    Some years ago, I settled on Carnauba Red for all my smokeless loads in my revolvers. At the time, I was often out in hot weather. Leaving my ammo in the car when temps were over 90 degrees created no problems with the lube melting and “killing” the ammo. Previously, that had happened to me at an especially bad time.

    Conversely, hunting in below zero weather had not presented a problem, either.

    I have shot, literally, tens of thousands of loads in revolvers, pistols, and rifles using Carnauba Red without issue. It does require a bit of heat when using my lube sizers (Star, Lyman, and RCBS).

    FWIW

    Good to know!
    I thought the Carnuba blue might be a bit better for our frigid hunting seasons so I bought both.

    I use BAC and am quite satisfied with it.

    After reading most of these posts I pulled the trigger and ordered some BAC to try in my Colt 1911A1 .45 ACP. I'm just starting to cast for the .45ACP and have high hopes. I have some brass, primers, BE, lead and a few molds to try out. I'm old and just want to plink. Glad I bought all the components when they were available at a decent price. BAC price seems good. Cheaper than I can make it.

    I used to make my own lube. After I discovered Lars and his lubes, I quit making my own lube for smokeless and use White Label Lubes for all of my smokeless loads in rifles and pistols. I now only shoot pistol after I lost the vision in my right eye.

    Lars of White Label Lubes has great prices and great Service!

    I am only connected to White Label as a customer, a satisfied customer for many years.

    I recently started casting again in large lots and needed lube. I bought several types from all the praise that was received here. I'll be set for a long time. Thanks Leah & Lars !!!!

    I use only 2500 and bought some bricks and melted them down with a heat gun and put them in PVC of the right length while sitting on a steel plate. After putting them in the freezer overnight they came out easily. I also did it with BAC and Carnuba red I think and haven't used either because the 2500 works for everything I have tried and there is no reason to change.
