This all-natural lubricant is made from a historically-correct mixture of beeswax and lamb tallow. It works very well for cap & ball revolvers and can be melted for dipping paper cartridges. It can also be used as a patch lube for muzzle loading rifles. This lube is very firm and stays in place well, even under recoil. The 4-ounce tin container fits easily into a range bag and can be heated for dip lubing. The dimensions of the container are 2.63 inches wide by 1.77 inches tall. A great companion to the Guns of the West paper cartridge kits!
