Edible? bullet lube


Premier Bigfoot Hunter
I have used bacon grease for patch lube,in my Hawken before with great results. And made gravy from the same batch. So there ya go.

Course I never tried gravy as a lube. If I let my wife make it, it would be thick enough to use for high velocity. Of course to some it may not be considered edible. :)

I seem to recall that a few years back some of the lipsticks and maybe some of the other face paint goop has/had lead in it.
Sooo, probably perfect for lube!

the hardware store has little 2oz. pucks of 'ultra refined' bees wax.
it's for rubbing on nails and screws.

lip stick also has a high bees wax content.
I was thinking TSC might be a good place to look for some

Those fancy white candles in churches are super refined beeswax. Maybe you can get someone to save the stubs for you. I got some after a wedding but we used them in candle lanterns for rendezvous.

Find a beekeeper for a supply of beeswax, they are always looking for someone to buy their wax “in the rough”. A few “bees knees” don’t hurt a thing in your bullet lube, IME.
most shoe polish and shoe waterproofing is mostly beeswax also. Everything leather gets a coat at my house.
