    Welcome Marcello!

    Back 35 years ago when I started casting my own boolits, I used a lube recipe of 1/3 Beeswax, 1/3 parafin wax. and 1/3 mineral oil. It worked (and still works) just fine.

    I own a Taurus Raging Bull and a Puma Legacy model 92 .454 Casull that were built in Brazil. It's a fine rifle, although a little tough on the shoulder after about 50 rounds.

    Hi 454PB,
    Thanks for the wellcome.
    You have two nice guns...and must be strong to shoot 50 rounds with rifle...
    I have one of those and work very nice.
    My lube works really nice, the carnauba leave the barrel shining...
    here in Brasil I make boolits to sell , about 500.000 a month, i use Magma equipament and automatic lube star.
    The most popular boolits are 40's, 9mm, 38/357, 45auto.
    We have a site called Tiro Dinamico (www.tirodinamico.com.br) like this one, just in portuguese.
    Thank you again for the warm reception in this forum, and if you want to known anything , just let me known.

    Take Care,

    Marcello

    PS. what about shot show in Orlando jan/07?

    If you're willing to put up with the bother, just empty a Makers Mark bourbon bottle, and then cut the carnauba wax off that makes the decorative seal over the cap and neck of the bottle.

    I know it's a thankless job, but it is one way to accumulate some free wax.
    Regards,

    Free, eh...? But does it help with the price of cheese? (I'm sure it would make them LOOK bigger... )
