    DIY case lube

    Ran out of the usual one shot I have been using and with our national shutdown it’s looking like I won’t be able to get any for a bit. Has anyone else come up with a home made case lube using common supplies that doesn’t need to be cleaned off before loading? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Been shooting 6.5 saum for a few years and with a new build in the future I’m thinking of making the jump up to 7saum for this one. Something about the 180 eld m at 2900 sounds perfect.
