Hi all,
recently I witnessed a new Pedersoli Gibbs M/L being shot for the first time.
A relatively inexperienced shooter who had never owned a BP Rifle before.

I watched him load and shoot off 20 bullets using straight BP, all of which hit the target in nice groups as he adjusted the sights to the 10 ring.

When he eventually stopped, I showed my extreme envy as to how well it shot straight out of the box. Without cleaning it once. !!

He said he didn't know you were supposed to clean it.

The lube he was using came with the rifle. Pedersoli BP Lube. A dark blue lube.
I have never seen it here in Australia before, and can't find it.  Cry

Does anyone know of it in the States. Probably expensive.

Dusty,

I found a lube made by Pedersoli called "Lubriblack" that's available from Gun City in New Zealand. I couldn't find it anywhere in the U.S. Maybe someone knows where to find it here.

Thanks, Rats

Dusty Rhodes,
Remember, that guy with the m/l rifle was (effectively) wiping/cleaning his bore after every shot......as he was reloading.

This may be a silly question for you experienced shooters, but are the amounts in the formulas by weight or volume? I'm not sure if it makes a difference if the ingredients are all about the same weight per volume. I'm new to the bpcr game and would rather be safe than sorry. Thanks for the info, this is a great website!

1 3/4 pounds of beeswax; 3/4 cup of petrolatum technical; 1/2 cup anhydrous lanolin; 1/4 cup of oildag.

Petrolatum technical is a heavy form of vaseline.  Available on line in 1 qt. cans.  Oildag is available from Silmid a British firm. A 1KG tin will last you forever. 

Use this lube when pan lubing or in a lubricator.  If you have trouble getting the cake out of the pan, use a little more wax in the formula. This is primarily a smokeless lube.  Will work with BP under favorable conditions.
