"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places".

The Mobile 1 synthetic is a crimson/red color. It does work well, but not historically correct if that is an issue. Personally, if I am out for a long period of shooting, I want something that will keep me running for that period of time.

Steamburn - do you put the lube pills directly over the powder?  Do you use a barrier of any sort between powder and pill?

Kaeto, old boy, give us your proportion of paraffin to beeswax one more time, please.

Yes, I do.  And there is more....I store my pills in a small tupperware mixed with dry polenta.  It keeps the pills from sticking to each other.  Also I have made paper cartridges doing the same thing, powder/pill/bullet, and I have kept them for at list a month, and the powder apparently was not affected.
I have never left a cylinder loaded.
