Mothers makes a liquid carnauba wax for car finishes. I've heard that rooster has dropped it's liquid bullet lube. I'm wondering if this would make a nice substitute. It looks like it goes for about nine bucks a pint. I wasn't able to find if it was petroleum based or not. I'll bet that it is but who know?

Check out Randy Rat over on castboolit vendor site. I bought some pure carnauba wax from him. I guess I am not brave enough to just start addding unknown components into a bullet lube without knowing what the stuff will do under heat and pressure (corrosion/erosion?)
I've been completely happy with WhiteLabel's 45:45:10 and have already use it on thousands of bullets. I had previously mixed and cooked my own 45:45:10 Recluse more than a few times and the commercial stuff is true to formula, It has a consistency of Hershey Syrup but the same color as my home mixed stuff.
I do warm my bullets and the lube before tumbling but that is not necessary unless you are loading them in 15 minutes..which I do and it is completely dry and non tacky in 15 minutes with the warming.
A fellow here sent me Planet Waves brand wood instrument wood finish "step 2" liquid carnauba wax about three years ago.it works very well when use like the Lee Product.it has petrolium distilaltes and woks well with Pyrodex and Triple Seven with conicals but gummed badly with real BP.With GC 22 and 30 it shot groups as small as any other lube i tried .I also use it in 32 ACP and 30 Mauser plainbase bullets.it dries quickly and has a slightly yellowish waxy look to it but isn't messy to handle.
