    Thanks Uncle G,

    I tried a mixture of Alox and liquid Johnson's Floor Wax 50/50. Sounds like your mixture has a bit of solvent in there too.

    My mix gave a honey colored coating on the bullet body. I dipped mine individually and let them dry. I dipped them over top of the factory lube-- the original premise of the thread.

    Can't say I was impressed. Certainly no worse than the original lube, but not noticeably better either.

    I'll do more testing come spring...

    Maybe if the factory lube was removed?

    The only reason that comes to my mind for this would be if one wanted to shoot black powder cartridges using prelubed bullets and therefore should use a softer lube to reduce the fouling.

    I have also bought commercial and then lubed wiht the Lee stuff. I bought some 125 grain 357 for my Rossi rifle and felt the tumble lube would not hurt at the velosity I would push them at as they were not gas checked. The tumble lube does seem to avoid leading issues. Mostly I cast my own but a couple of hundred commercial bullets for the 357 was much easier than buying a mold and being hard cast they fit my needs.
