It seems like that might be the case here but it does work fairly easily with my fingers. I guess if I ever get a chance to actually shoot the gun, I’ll have to test it and find out.I have no experience with coconut oil but with castor oil that ratio would be too stiff.
Coconut oil is pretty much the same. It’s kind of like Crisco in consistency and melts fairly easily.I suspect that is your body heat softening it.....uhhh....that would be the case with castor oil anyway. Those oils have different properties and I'm just plain ol' ignorant about coconut oil.
I have lubricated felt wads but I want to try my hand at making some simple cartridges as well. Those eliminate the option of lubed wads and require some bullet lube over the chambers.Me, I never liked the mess of lube over the ball, I used lubed felt wads. Lots cleaner and never had a chain fire.
I'm with you on that. Home made wads from wool felt soaked dumped into a pot of melted lube. I think I use about 1-2 teaspoons of melted lube for 100 felt wads.Me, I never liked the mess of lube over the ball, I used lubed felt wads. Lots cleaner and never had a chain fire.
