Two responses....plus a general question

Tom,

Your mix (Emmert's) appears to be close to what I was considering now that I came up with some beeswax. I was going to use olive oil for the oil.

Two questions:

1. Can you say why you went to lanolin?
2. Does this make a lube which retains its consistency in hot weather?

Hawg,

Thanks for the heads up on Alox. I will get a bit of it when i get the lube sizer kit. So I will give it a try. My hope is that it keeps the fouling soft in the .45 Long Colt pistol.

General:

Why is mutton tallow chosen over lard?

Tnx,
