LBT HIGH PERFORMANCE

All three hardnesses have the same
performance characteristics, which are unequaled by any other lubricant. Due to
superior control of friction, which is the cause of leading, LBT lubricants
produce less pressure than any other cast bullet lubricant, accompanied by
higher velocity capabilities. Rifles can be loaded to 3,000 fps without bore leading. Magnum
handguns absolutely will not lead with gas checked bullets, and fdPB can be
loaded to 1800 fps without leading in cool weather. Velocities of 1400 fps can be achieved at high ambient
temperatures, which are the worst conditions for shooting lead.
Typically, handguns will produce 300 fps more speed than with jacketed of equal
weight, if one of our LBT bullet designs is used. This is in handguns only. Rifles
tend to give very close to jacketed speeds with equal bullet weights and powder
charges. One of the most attractive properties of LBT lubricants which no
other can offer is: If you lead your bore from a crazy load or getting the gun
too hot, etc., let it cool down or go back to a load that doesn’t lead and
shoot 2 or 3 gas checked rounds, or 5 or so if plain based, and the lead will be gone. If
you’re leaded up from some other lubricant, LBT with gas checked bullets will
clean it out far quicker than shooting jacketed, but not with plain based. Lead
actually solders to the bore with other lubes. With LBT lubes, IF you can make
it lead, it’s so loose that more shooting will wipe it clean! We
recommend never cleaning the bore when LBT lubes are used. Look down the bore
and if there is lead, shoot it out, if not, DON’T CLEAN IT!
Very few people who have tried our lubricants will use anything else.
Flows thru most lubers at room temp without heat if the lube grooves are large. Some heat
is needed if grooves are small or temps are lower, especially with Lyman sizers.
LBT BLUE SOFT
Our most popular lube.
We believe this is our most popular
lube, mainly because it flows in almost any
temperature and yet is less effected by real high heat than any of the three.
For example, if ammo is left on a vehicle dash in the blazing sun, this lube won’t
migrate into the powder and kill it as most competitive lubes do. Our other two
are real good compared to competitive lubes, but soft is our best, staying where
it belongs when heated day after day at up to 200 deg! (For
Star sizers do not apply the full lube pressure to the lube screw in warm
temperatures or it will leave a streak of lube across the bullet. Alox and many
other will do the same.)
This is our hardest, and will require heat
for application, or 100 deg F ambient temperatures. It runs nicely through most
lubers with heaters running at around 100 to 120 deg F. Commercial casters
prefer it because it stays on boxed bullets best during shipping.
