Go over to Rimfire Central and check the .22 Ammo section. There is a discussion going on about this topic now. Why bother??

I always figured after Eley and Lapua put millions of dollars into developing their secret goo, I don't have a prayer of improving on it.

Among the reasons the ELEY shoots so well, right down to lots of the 7 buck stuff is the great lube.

Check with the black powder boys. They all have a special recipe for lube. The airgun guys use Krytec chain lube which is a spray wax.

to get the perfect lube is to sneak up on a pregnant Wolverine, best in the snow, because you must be gentle when you rassle 'er to the ground to milk 'er. Then, when you're done, of course y'gotta toss 'er far enough away so y'get a good start, so y' can't be wearin' any gloves during this operation, but....well....you get the idea. Anyhow, combine that Wolverine milk w/some beeswax from a wild(domestic will NOT do!!) hive of Killer Bees(how else can you produce "killer ammo"???) in a double boiler with 10% Socony water pump grease 15% paraffin, an a couple drops of Greased Lightnin'( keeps the milk from curdlin'). Simmer this mixture for a couple days, till it starts t'thicken up, then......uh oh, its supper time!! I gotta gyit I'll get back with y'all...well, wait, don' let it get TOO thick, just t'the point where a good Bowie knife'll stick up & you can bend her over not quite par'lel to th' bench top, then its ready!!! see y'all. Jus' put it on with a trowel, like yer finishin' seement.

You are a cruel person. Don't you realise that most of the old guys who read this board are predisposed towards incontinence? :eek:

that only be comes a problem during the wedding meal with the Wolverine. Its not even a consideration when you're trying to get her pregnant!! Jeez, c'mon, you haf t'be a little judishis in how you go about it, like how to perform dentistry on the brown tree snake down your way, right?? But its all relavent, I swear, to the application of bullet lube, whether RF or central-fire, eh??

Brian, you definitely got a way with words! Either that, or way too much time on your hands. I should be so lucky!

to LOVE to have fun, FUN F....U....N!!! Like the time, around noon, the Bos'n came on the bitchbox with an excessively (to me) LOOOOONG trill on the pipe, which I'd heard a time or two, thought was somewhat asinine, but today I just wanted to find out what it was for, since it wasn't accompanied by a voice command. So, I called up to the bridge and asked for the bosun's mate of the watch. He gets on the 'phone & I asked, "Hey Boat's, what was that last pipe"?? He answers like a Dad to a son, "Lunch Call." I came back with, "Why didn't you just say,'CHOW!" "WHO IS THIS??" "You don't know?? NO! You REALLY DON'T KNOW??(real authority, now) NO! "Good! Let's just keep it that way" SLAM went the 'phone on MY end, before he got out more than a splutter. And all my buddies rollin' on the deck.

Or the time we'd been cleaning ALL NIGHT to get ready for port the next morning, I think in Norther Ireland; we were running in some eight footers, & had all the curtains drawn, when all of a sudden we start taking some breaks over the side, because we're running up the troughs, so, I called up the Air Boss & asked for the quartermaster's number, got it & dialed it. (You couldn't get away w/this today, they'd know which phone it was coming from.)
I get the QM on the line & say, "Who the HELL you got up there drivin'?? "WHAT did you say"?? "YOU heard me, you're supposed to put this bitch INTO the waves, not crosswise, now straight'ner up! An' Don't MAKE me come up there'n show you HOW!!" SLAM! went my 'phone again. (Always hang up while you have the advantage of anonimity.) Some in my Division could NOT beLIEVE some of the stuff I pulled. Like how I painted part of the ship when it had just been painted & a different color, too! Without getting caught 'til I was on my way w/new orders. But, That's one I REALLY can't tell right now! Maybe another time, but its wwaaaayyyy too long. SEEya
