    Not sure where this belongs.........

    As most of ya'll know, I disdain the cap worn by kids today, preferring the dignity of a proper hat. But I can't get my ear protection over my hat, so I keep a cap in my Jeep.

    Getting it out Saturday, I noticed a build-up of a grayish, waxy stuff at the junction of the bill to the cap. What could this be?, I wondered.

    Dawned on me-its bullet lube. The hot blast of air that wafts over me with each shot when the wind is in my face brings along a trace of bullet lube, which, after several thousand rounds, shows up on my cap.

    Just keep all your spent shells in your cap while at the range and maybe you won't have to lube them when you reload next time.

    I wish I could use bullet lube to hold some hair in place. Shoot I just wish I had some hair to worry about.

    This is bullet lube. I use mostly cast bullets which require lube.

    Reloading, I use carbide dies which require no case lube.

    Speaking of bullet lube, have you ever been around someone using beeswax based lubricant, shooting on a warm summer day? Attracts bees like mad.

    And, no, I've never seen a bee try to make out with a bullet on its way down range. Just to nip that story in the bud.
