    You won't find any beeswax at any first-hand stores including the big candle stores. Maybe its my rotten State. Sniffing really hasnt helped, Its like pewter, I can spot it.

    Oh, sure you can!

    But, just like pewter, it’ll be a relatively rare item among all the paraffin versions, and command a premium price when new or if sold as a vintage item in a snobby antique shop.

    I just saw a large pewter plate in a high end shop, a fancy reproduction that I recognized from buying at an estate sale. They were asking hundreds of dollars for something I bought at scrap price.

    The point of adding bee's wax and candle wax to my homemade bullet and case lubes isn't to make better candles but to add body to other waxes and oils to make overly soft mixtures hard enough to use normally. It doesn't take much scented candle wax to help with the needed hardness and the faint odor is pleasant too.

    My first source was Cast Boolits members, but it can be bought online.
    If there's a "Michael's" craft store near you, they had beeswax the last time I needed some.
    Warning: I know Judo. If you force me to prove it I'll shoot you.
