Thanks for the response.
Right now I have a coupla tubs of lube which is Crisco and toilet donuts and a coupla tubs which is Crisco and Beeswax. The beeswax is stiffer.
Both of these lubes are fine for cap and ball revolvers where the lube is just schmootzed over the ball in the chamber. But the Crisco and toilet donuts does not seem to get stiff enough for making the pills.
