    Hi Guys, several years ago, I made a black powder lube from that all elusive “Navy Surplus Beeswax”  It worked great in Muzzle Loaders and BPCR Rifles.  It would stay stay put on the bullets in the Arizona summer heat and was still soft enough to use on Minnies in your muzzle loader in the winter.

    Al Nelson from NOE called me a little while back and said that he had some of the surplus wax still sitting in a box from way back when.  He sent it to me and I dug out the old recipe,  So there is a small batch of “BPCR Supreme” in 1# blocks made and at NOE.  I’m posting this here first so you guys could get a jump on it if you want any.  I made one small change from the original.  It used to have a small amount of Pepermint Oil in it for a preservative, but there was some comments that it was too smelly for hunting, so I left it out this time.

    That’s pretty awesome Glenn. Be sure to save a small sample of that wax. I’m still trying to get the local university to agree to run me a Mass/Spec on the stuff. As soon as I get a thumbs up, we’re going to figure out what that stuff is made of once and for all.

    That would be awsome.  I’d love to find a good replacement for it.

    Wouldn’t we all.

    I believe that was the same wax that Felix used in the original FWFL recipe if I’m not mistaken. I keep hitting up the engineers at work. One of these days something will shake out.
