I believe it was on this forum, but somewhere I saw a recipe for a homemade spray case lube. Can anyone direct me to this or post a link to somewhere else where there are ingrediants and instructions?

From what I recall, several members said it worked very well, and I just shelled out $9.99 again for another can of One Shot and that got me thinking, I should bite the bullet and round up the ingrediantes to make my own.

Many thanks.

I found the Lanolin at a Whole Foods market and the Heet at Wal Mart.

You can use the 90% alcohol it just takes longer to evaporate.

I have been using home made case lube for years. Never stuck a case. If y'all want my recipe PM me and I'll look it up and post. 99% iso and liquid lanolin might be the ingredients. It's cheap and lasts a long time. I made up one gallon and still working on it.

Good info on making homemade lanolin lube here:
http://www.frfrogspad.com/homemade.htm#Sizing
EDITED: The mixture is best at 8 parts alcohol to one part liquid lanolin. Any ratio that uses more lanolin to alcohol is too greasy. 16 oz of alcohol to 2 oz. of liquid lanolin works well. Some report good results with less lanolin. Definitely use 99% alcohol if possible.

OK, so I need clarification. The first video says the
mix is 12 parts Iso, and 1 part lanolin, and the link to
the text says the mix is 4 to 5 parts Iso, and 1 part
lanolin. Big difference in mixing ratios! So what
are people actually using for mixing ratios? I have
also read internet forums where the suggested ratio is
8:1. So which one works for the bootleg case lube mixers
here?

Thanks
Squeeze

I used a 12 oz. bottle to 1 oz. liquid lanolin.

FWIW, maybe 8 months ago came home from a Lowes store with can of ULTRA LUBE, an aerosol can of lubricant and penetrant that is supposed to be a soy bean based product minus any petroleum oils. Bought it just to replace the can of penetrant I'd used up. The Ultra Lub can said it had 4 times the lubrication of oil based products. Also labeled eco safe, non-toxic, odor free.

Happen to have the Ultra Lub near me one day when I was going to resize some brass...so, being a curious guy, sprayed some on a lub pad and tried it on my brass. Stuff worked quite well for resizing brass. Been using it ever since. It replaced the Imperial Sizing wax I'd been using.

I use lanolin and 80% alcohol. Had to find the alcohol at a medical supply store as the pharmacy was only carrying 50% and 70%
