Case Lubricant -Home Made

Recommended Posts

Been looking for a case lub spray for sometime,  and came across some US youtube videos of home made case lub, so gave it a try.

It's dead simple: 9 parts isopropyl alcohol mixed with 1 part lanolin liquid, in a hand spray. Throw all the cases in a plastic tub, spray them, roll them about, job done. Brilliant results. 

When the IPA vents off, there's just a slight amount of lub left. I just fire all the cases into my ultrasonic cleaner, then dry them off in my airing cupboard. Effortless and brilliant results.

Good idea.

Watch you don't use anhydrous lanolin. The water might cause some brass tarnish.

Lanolin and olive oil mixed make a good rust preventative for guns and is kind on the skin.

Where do you get lanolin  from?  I know its in hand creams but is it sold as just lanolin? Where,  What, how?

I use to order it from boots chemists but that was years ago. I still have a tub left.

Some are selling llanolin. Anhydrous has water added. One would have to investigate....

Pure Lanolin liquid. The residue still needs to be cleaned off mind.

Do a search on flea bay. 

My process is:

Resize and remove primer

Check and or trim length

Clean primer pocket

15 mins in ultrasonic cleaner - this gets rid of powder and lub residue

Then tumbler if required.

Inspect

Ready to load

The homemade brew works a treat. The IPA vents off leaving a thin film of lanolin. I highly recommend it.
