The other day in Walmart, I picked up the jars of both lard and tallow and checked for salt. Each product was available in the store for not much money if anybody is trying to find a source. Chicken fat was there as well, but who uses THAT for lube? 
I didn't want either thing, but the thread came to mind when I happened to spot them.

You could call it Clucker Creamer. Er, clucker waxer. Chicken Rid....... Er, Clucker begone, er,   

My grandpa used to render saved chicken fat. Kept it in the freezer. Must have used it for cooking or flavoring.

If one does not decide to depend on a proven lube that actually works. How could anyone go out to continually go out and to thinks they might be able to reach any type of personal success?

While I have switched to Javelina lube for the time being, I still plan a test against my homebrew that I have been using for several years now.  Having shot about 1000 rds with the Javelina, I cannot say that I have experienced any increase in accuracy.  It is a bit more of a warm and fuzzy feeling using that lube as quite a few locals are using it with great success.  The only reason that I would switch back is that my lube smells MUCH better and the cake released from the 8x8 cake pan easier.  Plus it is probably good for your hands as the main ingredients are beeswax, mink oil, and anhydrous lanolin.   

That said, if I was to start from scratch and not mess with buying and mixing ingredients, I would go with Javelina lube.

My own lube is a little better than Javaline because it will withstand higher heat. 

Have to be careful with Javalina in hot weather. Wait a minute, okay they must be equal because the Javalinea pan lubes easier than my lube. But wait, my lube doesn't stink up the place like Javalina. Mines a little better.....

No, John you don't have to use a proven lube to do well. I started out using Darr lube and it worked fine in cooler weather.  Anyone can buy or make good bullet lube.

Tomorrow I will dig out my scientific hot plate and do a melting test with SPG, Javelina, older Alberta lube and my home brew.  Heading to the range first think as winds are predicted to be calm.  No danger of lube melting in the morning at  a predicted 38 degrees.  Yeah I know, us western Washingtonians are weather wimps.  Below 40 is too cold and over 80 is too hot. Give me a good rainy 60 degree day anytime.

Joe F it is not all about what has been proven to be good for me but for each of you. In other words it is all about getting out to practice allot with whichever one you choose use. So proven to me means that ones own choice of lube works for himself and it would then be his own best lube.
My own I have been using for about 10 years now so yes it has proven to be a good lube choice for myself in temps in the 30's and 100+ degrees.

Jack my lube is just simply 75% Javelina and 25% Dell59C. The addition of the 59C is just to get the lube cake to shrink quite abit. To be able to get it out of the same type of lube pan that you also use with ease. If there is an additional benefit such as it being 100+ degrees it would actually be an unknown to me.
