Which lube for pan lubing?

I'm at the end of my mystery lube (made from a little of this and that) and I need to purchase several pounds of lube that will work for pan lubing.

What to get?  Why?

Javelina Schuetzen Lube. Easy to pan lube with. It can stay in the lube cake overnight and the bullets are still easy to remove. I use it in weather ranging from just under freezing to over 100 degrees with no leading ever. 

Try it. You won't be sorry.

I used Javelina lube all summer.† Just shot 72 rounds in a BP match. No wiping or cleaning between shots. No leading and no loss of accuracy. Pan lubes very well.

Good stuff.

Joe, what caliber were you shooting in the match?  I have been using Javalina with smokeless and SPG for black and wasn't aware that Javalina worked with black. As always, dumb but happy.  Tom

You guys make the decision tough!  Is it J.S.L. or maybe J.S.L.?

Over the years Ive used a lot of lubes. I started using Javalina when it was comming from Javalina lubes. Then I got the bug and made my own lube for a while then went back to Javalina. then thought the grass was greener and tried SPG, Then decided i could make SPG that would melt at a little higher tempreture and shot that for a couple of years. Im back to Javalina Schuetzenlube. Somehow I always come back. save yourself the hasstle just shoot the Javalina you would find anything better.

Nobody has mentioned Buck Emmertís most famous contribution to the subject. There are several mods and improvements to the original formula, but any of them would be hard to beat for BP or low pressure (like schuetzen, for instance) smokeless loads.  Itís the only thing Iíve ever used for pan lubing. (Thanks, Dale53!)

I remember now. Bob Zimmerman used it for a while but found something he didn't like about it.  Bobs decision to not use it halted my making some up.   

My own best home made lube is similar but I didn't use Crisco.

I actually used Dell59C for numerous years with great success. The only reason I moved away from it was when I had the bottom row of bones in my right wrist removed. I could no longer turn my lube pumps or to push them out of a poured lube cake. It actually sets up pretty hard and the pain I could no longer take or I would still be using it myself today. So what I ended up doing was to change it to now being 75% JSL and 25% Dell59C.

The "version" of Emmert's ( for black and smokeless) lube that I and a number of others are using is so simple and cheap:
1 lb UNSALTED pork lard
1 lb beeswax
8 oz olive oil
In a double boiler, pour in olive oil and add lard.† When lard melts, add beeswax cut into small pieces ( too speed melting) and stir until all melted.
Your now ready to pour over bullets standing in a small kitchen loaf tin above the level of the top grease groove.
It's best to leave out a couple of bullets so your pour doesn't knock it over. Also, wipe the outside of the double boiler before pouring so you don't introduce water into the mix.† With tweezers, place remaining bullets in pan without knocking over others.
Once cooled, press out and your ready to shoot.
Take your empty cake and press fresh cast bullets of the same size into the holes and put back in tin. Place in oven at 250 degrees until lube is a liquid and turn off oven.† It is so easy once you have made a batch.
Because it's so cheap, I make up different batches for every size.† I keep it with or without bullets stored in a garage fridge, each tin wrapped in plastic cling wrap.
