    Go to a farm implement store and get the graphite they use in the seed when planting.

    If you only have 40 pounds to treat 1 teaspoon in a tumbler will do the job.

    Put some of the shot in a 2 litre plastic soda bottle, add a teaspoon of powdered graphite and shake well before using. A little goes a long way. HMB

    You have a private message.

    I'm heading for the gun club as soon as I finish this note. If you respond to my pm, I'll see it when I get home later.
