Paper cartridge lubrication for Brown Bess

A good lubricant for paper cartridges can be made from half beeswax and half butter flavored Crisco.  Adjust mixture as needed for the outdoor temperature.  Dip the full ball end of the paper cartridge in the melted mixture several times.  With correctly lubed cartridges, you can shoot an entire woods walk without cleaning.  You may substitute some other oil or grease for the butter flavored Crico - but in case you are lost & starving in the woods and have to eat your cartridges - butter flavored Crisco tastes better.  :-)
