Reloading.Org.uk BP Patch Lube

This is a black powder patch lubricant/fouling softener is liquid lube  made to our own formula. The Lube can be used to lube and keep the fouling soft in muzzle loading pistols, and muzzle loading rifles that use a patched ball,  It is based on beeswax and olive oil and smells of wintergreen and is similar to Liquid Wonder lube  and other patch lubes.  It can also be applied at the range to individual patches but the more solid BP bullet lube may be better. 150 grams bottle 

To lube dry patches.

Take a stack of 50 or so dry patches and some patch lube, take approximately 40 off the top of the stack and put a pool of patch lube about the size of a 5 pence piece on the pile and replace the ones taken off the top, take approximately 30 off the stack and do the same, repeat every 10 or so. Now pick up the stack and squeeze top to bottom between your  fingers and thumb working the lube in as you go. Split the again where it wants to as the lubed patches will stick together where the dry ones wont. Keep putting small amounts of lube on the dry patches and squeeze the stack until there are no more dry or partially dry patches. Use as little lube as possible but ensure every patch is fully lubed.
