Your observation and mine are exactly the same.
My only thought is that there are numerous long time shooters who seem to like beeswax as a component in their bore lube. There must be some reason for their loyalty. I assume it has to do with the performance of the lube they make with it.
I am going to scout around for some and give it a try. The prices at castboollits are pretty good. It runs about 17.00 delivered for three pounds. But as Tom and Beag say, they are out until August.
If I don't scare some up until then I will give them a try.
I can't very well pooh pooh beeswax based bore lube until I make some and try it.
