hi
after casting my own bullets i thought i might try to also make my own bulletlube
yes i know that it is for sale in a stick form , but i like the independance to make my own.
i melted some purified beeswax , 200 grams , and added 200 grams of
molycote 2 br grease.
i heated it to the point it floated easily and poured it straight in the lubesizer.
if it works i plan to make a sort of mold to produce some sticks , like the factorie
ones.
when "my"lube cools down it looks like the super moly lube by lyman , yet a little more greasy...
next week i gonna give it a go at the range with my cast wadcutters.
anyone else that tried this blend of lube ?
greetings , edwin:D

My lube consiste of Beeswax, parafine, auto car wax, and alox. Works for me, let us know how you'rs works out. May very well be an excellent lube.

Tip, hop over to cast bollits.com, there are many lube receipts there.

Alox lube works as well if not better then graphite or moly.

And isn't nearly as big a mess, before, or after shooting it.

Nothing wrong with making your own lube,I make my own using Lee Alox and Johnson Paste Wax (cooked down) to burn off the solvents and mix to two together 50/50 it works great up to 2K fps. MV that's as far as I have pushed it to date for my tumble lube and ranch dipped bullet.

White Label Lube has some good prices on various stick lubes if your interested later if yours doesn't work out.

hello,
today ive tried my new bulletlube with a batch of 50 bullets.
they shot great , no problems here.
when i got home i ran a few dry patches down the bore and cillinder .
ive noticed that the bore was relative clean , so were the cillinders so the lube does great !
in fact , its much better than the one i bought in the store !
the cillinderface was always a little difficult to clean , but i could almost wipe everything off with a cloth !
another plus... the residu left on and in the gun is easily removed with the use of some ballistol oil as it seems to work as a kind of solvent for this residu.
the inside of the barrel is mirrorbright , just a little leading in the forcingcone , nothing serious , also a little in the throats, again nothing serious.
the lube ran just fine through my lubersizer without heating or whatever.
the lube is easy and cheap to make , its beeswax and molycoat 2 br grease in equal amounts..[50 / 50].
works great for me !..
greetins from holland !

so , my favorite load so far :
150 grain wadcutter from a lyman mould , lead / tin is 40 / 1 , casted myself.
sized to . 357 , lubed with 50 / 50 beeswax / molycote 2 br.
3.1 grains of alliant bullseye powder , cci 500 primer , .38 casing , little crimp.
shot trough my smith 686 4" its very accurate and a easy cleanup with some ballistol oil .

now the thing that needs some improvement is my own skill... but a lot of practice
would do the trick i guess...
