I use Buck Emmert's Lube Formula (for black powder)
1750 grains Beeswax
1368 grains Crisco Shortening (White)
328 grains Crisco or Wesson Vegatable Oil
This recipe makes 1/2 pound lubricant. If you tray lube as I do, you'll probably
want to double the recipe.
I also now substitute Anhydrous lanolin for the vegatable oil.
I use a WalMart cheapie crock pot to melt this in, I then use a turkey baster to put it in the pan with the bullets standing up.
BTW I have never used Alox
