You can make the LLA go a whole lot further if you put the bottle into a cup of hot water. (Hot as hot tap water hot. About 120 to 130 or so degrees for about 5 minutes.) It spreads a lot more evenly, and thin so it dries faster. I pile them on a paper plate. I toss them like a salad moving them around a bit for a couple of days. When I let mine dry for at least 3 days they do not get tacky or sticky at all.
It is the only lube I use with smokeless powder. For BP I use a mix of bees wax, hog lard, and light touch of lanolin for cartrige rounds. For the revolvers I use the old tried and true lard, and bees wax.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
