I received several PM's about the grease cookies. Here is the original recipe I got from "Smokingun" several years ago.

"What I did was start out with:
Parafin comes in a brick divided to to 4 like a stick a butter, I used a stick.
Then 1/4 of a Bowlwax Toilet Seal Ring(Beeswax)substitute or beeswax to use with the parafin.
Then 8-10 Tablespoons of Olive Oil/soy oil
The Olive oil is the Lube the Waxes just carry it and keep the pill as
you want it.(consistency/hard or soft...climate time of year)
And that made a lot, about 600 pills...about 1/8" thick for the most part.
Place the lube mixture in a small saucepan, place the small saucepan in a larger pan with water
Use a heated pizza pan to pour your mix into...
so mix cools evenly(flat) .Place in fridge when it's set stiff(optional)
And worked good for need to try your best guess and add/subract as you like them
for your use.

Punch out to the caliber of your choice, with a tube. Place lube pill over powder with ball
on top. You'll shoot all day without binding. Keeps cylinder lubed fouling soft and barrel
relatively clean."

You can change the amounts to alter the hardness and melting point of the cookies. I like to use Balistol as the liquid/oil but any of the normal items well work. They make great arbor lube too.
