Dusty Rhodes,
Remember, that guy with the m/l rifle was (effectively) wiping/cleaning his bore after every shot......as he was reloading.

This may be a silly question for you experienced shooters, but are the amounts in the formulas by weight or volume? I'm not sure if it makes a difference if the ingredients are all about the same weight per volume. I'm new to the bpcr game and would rather be safe than sorry. Thanks for the info, this is a great website!

1 3/4 pounds of beeswax; 3/4 cup of petrolatum technical; 1/2 cup anhydrous lanolin; 1/4 cup of oildag.

Petrolatum technical is a heavy form of vaseline.  Available on line in 1 qt. cans.  Oildag is available from Silmid a British firm. A 1KG tin will last you forever.   

Use this lube when pan lubing or in a lubricator.  If you have trouble getting the cake out of the pan, use a little more wax in the formula. This is primarily a smokeless lube.  Will work with BP under favorable conditions.

I use Ben's Red.

The usual formula :

50% beeswax
30% Lucas Red and Tacky High Temp Grease
10% Johnson's Paste Wax
5% Dexron II or Dexron III Trans. Fluid
5% STP Oil Treatment


On one of the Forums I visit one of the guys figured out the liquid measurements to this,

Liquid measurements:

16 oz.  beeswax
9.6 oz. Lucas Red and Tacky High Temp Grease
3.2 oz. Johnsons Paste Wax
1.6 oz. Dexron II
1.6 oz. STP

Works great for centerfire rifle loads and all pistol loads that I shoot (a lot) as a matter of fact that is the only lube I have now as I don't load any black powder.
I'm sorry guys but I use 5744 in my 45/70 now in my RB & FB rifles. Embarrassed
Seems better for the sizer instead of pan lubing.

Steve...........

recipe 1
3 ozs Vaseline
3 ozs. beef tallow
8 ozs. beeswax

Melt beef tallow and vaseline first, then add beeswax

Recipe 2
1 lb paraffin
1 lb Vaseline
2 tbsp STP oil treatment
2 ozs. beeswax

melt together at same time

recipe 1 holds together well under higher temps, style 2 is a little softer and is great for single shot rifles.

Beeswax (flax beeswax)
Lanolin    (raw filtered)
EV olive oil
Green Velvet steam cylinder oil (compounded).

That was my best lube for the last twenty years. Just using up the last of it. Cannot remember the proportions exactly. 

What I do remember is, equal parts beeswax and lanolin. Added steam cylinder oil till I got the viscocity I wanted. Couple table spoons of olive oil made it gooey so it would stick to my bullets. 

Just got some new Javelina lube. I'm confident it will work great.

Alberta Schuetzen Lube Recipe

35 oz. (993 grams)  Charcoal Filtered Beeswax  (lubricity, stickiness)
16 oz. (454 grams)  Commercial Toilet Ring Seal  (lubricity, increase stickiness)
16 oz. (454 grams)  Crisco Vegetable Shortening  (lubricity, viscosity adjuster)
5 oz. (142 grams)  Anhydrous Lanolin  (lubricity, stickiness)
3 oz. (85 grams)  Ivory Dish Washing Detergent  (emulsifier, mixer, cleaner of fouling)
2 oz. (57 grams)  Canola Oil  (lubricity, viscosity adjuster)
1 oz. (28.4 grams)  Opti-Lube Oil Fortifier  (metal conditioner)

Optional:
2 oz. (57 grams)  Ground Rock Rosin  (increases stickiness) – But will fall out of suspension if melted again for pan lubing.

Add a large can of Black Kiwi Shoe Polish to show bullet holes better on red targets.

Viscosity is suitable for shooting from - 40 F. to 110 F.
Has improved stickiness and will not allow sloughing off at higher temperatures.
Metal conditioning of the barrel reduces the potential of lead adhering.
Has built in emulsifier (does not rely on saponification to occur)  to better collect, mix and wipe out fouling for both Black Powder and smokeless powders.

Yes it works excellent, however, SPG has a lovely fragrance.  SPG wins  again.
Drop a chunk about the size of a .58 RB in the pot, light it with a striker. Stir and mix your alloy. When the flames die skim and cast. Do not breath the fumes lest you become a cheddar head.

Eight pages of all types of bullet lubes proves just about anything will work. 

BS works too and there's a fair amount of that here and out there.
