Re: Different patches
IMO, if you stick with the basics, patch lube and amount, thickness and material and ball size, you will find the right combo for your gun without fussing with any of the "extras". the only thing I would change if you are using olive oil or mink oil, is to heat it and mix in some bee's wax to help solidify it, so it is easier to carry, rather than having a liquid. I mix mine at 5 parts virgin olive oil to 1 part of bee's wax. the next batch I may try 4 to 1. with that mix my first shot is as good as my 10th (or more) shot, with no swabbing and no fuss and they load easy.
