What did you do in the reloading room today.
      #342889 - 29/06/20 01:04 AM

I decided to make some bullet lube from five pounds of raw beeswax I get from a local beekeeper. This is a standard 50/50 mixture of beeswax and crisco. The beeswax boiled down and strained through cheesecloth and then mixed with Crisco and poured into schedule 40 pvc tubes and cooled in the freezer. Cut to fit inside my Lyman 450 lubersizer.





























This lube will work with the new fifty caliber MP mold cast bullets for the Remington roller.

TB, I found the mix of 40:60 Vaseline:Beeswax, while being a great BPowder ctg. lube, it also worked well in my .45 cal. Rifles with smokeless. Mixed by volume.
Nice system you have there.

Pretty slick operation TB!
You certainly have it all down pat, the tea pot certainly is a novel way of doing things; very controllable!

The lube mold I was using then was just a prototype. I got with the top dog of the cabinet company I was doing some part-time with on a cnc program to cut out the base for a lube block to hold the mold tubes and the center post. Came out primo.
