    I can not remember if I have submitted this previously. But going through my reloading equipment and information. I came across my formula for Case Lube and thought I would share it again incase I have not in the distant past.
    Here it is!
    You will need the following items from your local store or drug store.

    1. Liquid Lanolin
    2. 99% Isopropyl Alcohol
    Ratio:
    1 Part Lanolin to 4 or 5 Parts 99% Isopropyl Alcohol to your preference.
    * Do not use 92% Isopropyl Alcohol
    3. Heat Warm Water to maintain a temp. of 110 Degrees while mixing.
    (WARNING!) *Do not heat the mixture operation over an Open Flame!)
    4.Pour in item 1 and 2 into the water and mix until the properties combine.
    5. Pour Contents into a dispenser bottle
    Makes some great Case Lube. And you can make as much as you want.
    ;)
    A friend of mine loads thousands of rounds each year at his Reloading Company. He makes his own Case Luge from this formula, which saves him a significant amount of money each year.

    Very first sticky...dated July 25 , 2012.
    If you have any problems with cases sticking you can increase the ratio of Lanolin to alcohol from 1 to 4 to a ratio of 1 to 1 .
    The old original formula I have from 50 years ago called for 1 part lanolin to 1 part alcohol .
