Any one has a recipe for making their own Ballistol? I use the stuff for black powder shooting and do find it does a good job.
I do have some water solvent cutting oil from NAPA and use it cut with water for cleaning bp but Ballistol is better.

Pretty sure Ballustol is made from pharmaceutical grade components, fwiw. I don’t plan on dressing wounds with it, so might not matter... but supposedly you can.

I thought it was essentially neat isopropyl alcohol, pure mineral oil, and one other thing... some fatty acid or something...
