Hi Steve, I got you. Yea, I used to buy SPG years ago, until it got expensive. Boy and how, on the amount of lube those big bullets eat. In reference to my experiments with the Japan wax, there is no way in its natural state that it will work in a lubersizer. I wish I could find out what the Arsenals used with it. They had to have alloyed it with something, because it will not stay in grooves alone. As is, it has the consistency of a bar of Lava soap. The olive oil softened it up to where it would squash through the sizer. But, as stated earlier, it was not as greasy, or seemed to have the moist content of the beeswax/olive oil. Maybe I will try some Crisco with it. Let me know what kind of luck you have with the beeswax, olive oil, and Crisco. It sounds like it may make a good laxative, too. I am always interested in new kinds of bullet lubes. Regards, Ken
