Bullet lube??

Post by Johnnyjr »

Anybody have a cheap lube recipe for pan lubing. On fixed income can't afford a lot. Thanks. I understand you can't use the waxed toilet rings any more due to not being real wax or whatever. Johnny

I made this one with crayons melted in for color. Works well.

I've used beeswax and crisco in about a 2:1 ratio for non-magnum handgun loads. Still have some, but I ain't pan lubed in a while. I should run a batch, it's fun once in a while.

Have you made that mix since Crisco eliminated partially hydrogenated fat? Makes a helluva difference in pie crust.

I haven't made a new batch in about 7 years now. I still have plenty left from the last batch too.
