I guess the bees wax would allow thickening to a point it would not foul the powder?

I'm just lazy. Been using T/C bore butter from day one. It works, and doesn't have to be made, just go buy it.

I heat a tablespoon of bore butter in a ziplock baggie in the microwave. when it's melted I put the ticking strip in the baggie and massage the melted bore butter into it. I wipe the excess of with a paper towel.

napa 765-1526 cutting grinding oil 4oz
8oz of 91%Isopropul alcohal
1oz of murphys soap
16 oz of water

mix alcohal/oil first before adding water/soap

dip in your pillow tick and let dry ..

cut at muzzle ...

best i have used no messy bore butter and I shoot a dry bore cloverleaf at 50 yards with my hawkins 50cal ...if ball/patch is little hard to push down just spray a mist of this in small spray bottle on patching

imo, all that the bees wax does is make the olive oil more of a paste, so it isn't a liquid and can be carried in a small tin. I have NO fouling issues or clean up issues at all, can shoot all day without cleaning or swabbing. I make my own so I don't have to depend on finding what I want, when I want it at the store.
