Bowl Wax as Bullet Lube

A while back, I asked on this Forum whether anyone had tried using toilet bowl wax for bullet lube. I got various recommendations on recipes for homemade lubes that use it, but no one seemed to have used the stuff straight.

Well, I finally got around to giving it a try, since I finally ran the old lube out of my sizer. I got a ring of Fluidmaster Bol-wax, and used it straight.
The stuff goes on very much like Saeco Gold, and requires minimal heating ( no heating if you lube on a warm day ).

The proof of the pudding is in the shooting - and my target velocity .45ACP loads shoot every bit as well as Saeco Gold or Green do. Without a bit of leading. So, now I know to by my bullet lube in the plumbing aisle!

I began using it three years ago in my cap & ball guns and also for lubing precut patches. Down here in Florida where the ultraviolet rays are more intense, and everything made of metal can get superheated, it just makes good sense to thicken it some with beeswax and some Octagon soap. Otherwise it will melt into the powdercharge.
