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've mixed it with equal parts beeswax and candle paraffin (the beeswax was a furniture polish/conditioner with some orange oil in it. Works just fine with my light loads in 30-06 and smells good too. (The candle wax was scented.)
