Gents, 
What do you folks use for 'lube' on a .32-20 CPA?  It will be a plain base, breach seated lead  bullet.  Thanks.

For the past 3 years I have been using Alberta Schuetzen Lube in my 32-40s with excellent results. Accuracy is the same I had been getting for years with the old Smiley Schuetzen Lube. Leading was never an issue with either. Works in both cold and hot weather (by Arizona standards anyway).
Contact Schuetzendave on this forum to buy it.

If you look in the reloading section you will see a ‘sticky’ at the top with lube formulas.  I use SPG for BP and a home brew for smokeless.  I just checked some 4 year old or maybe older bullets with the home brew on them and it is as soft and sticky as it was when applied.  Might not be as good as the Alberta lube in cold weather but I will never have to find out.

In my BP rifles I use SPG and DGL.  When I was shooting cast pistol bullets, I used Lyman or whatever else was on sale.  With the .32-20 I'll be pan-lubing.  Haven't been the pan-lube route before.

Just curious...
What's the word on LONG term storage of fixed ammo using SPG?
Any chemical reaction noted between SPG and the inside neck of the brass?

Damn Good Lube, it compares to SPG and usually sells for a little less.

Buck Emmert's Lube:  50% beeswax - 40% White Crisco - 10% Vegetable Oil (I use Canola Oil)

Pan lube with a double boiler and keep the lube refrigerated It will last forever.

Short for "Javelina Schuetzen Lube" Bob Z and has nothing to do with me other than I enjoy using it.

I don't shoot BP, but for smokeless I use Wind's Wonder Wax formula.
50% bees wax, 40% Crisco, and 10% Vaseline by weight.

I use Javalina type lube and LSStuff has the equivalent to Javalina
75%-25% Alox/Bees Wax
also
50%-50%
Very good people to deal with.
I used Emerts Lube for years just doesn't hold up well over time, dries out.
Have used SPG with good success as well.

Alberta Schuetzen Lube has the viscosity for shooting from -40 to 110 F.

It sticks to the bullet and the barrel providing proper lubricity regardless of temperature due to two additives that make it stickier; which prevents sloughing off in high temperatures.

It contains four different elements to improve lubricity.

It also has a metal conditioner to prevent or reduce lead or other bullet material from sticking to your barrel.

It has an emusifier to help mix/pick up and wipe out any fouling elements in your barrel.

This lube has additional or better capabilities than the beeswax and lard or oil lube recipes frequently used.

And yes it is designed to be melted repeatedly for those interested in pan lubing.

It has proven to be extremely successful with smokeless powders and works just as well with black powder.

Development tests included continuous shooting of 100 shot groups of plain based 20:1 alloy cast bullets at 1,800 fps at 110 F. at Raton, New Mexico and -40 F at Spruce Grove, Alberta.
