Re: great day at the range

Nice. I've been curious about olive oil for patch lube myself. You say it worked good for you? I heard of using straight olive oil, but I also have a large block of beeswax. What was your ratio?

I recently picked up some unlubed patches to use for that. Almost hate to change things up now so close to the season, maybe for the late season. But, I'm going to the range tomorrow, so maybe i'll make some straight olive oil patches now and shoot a few

Re: great day at the range

5 parts virgin olive oil and 1 part bees wax. that is by weight, not volume. been using it now for about 4 years, and it works good in all my guns.

Very nice. I have a bunch of beeswax. Might have to give this a try.
