Title: Lubed wad making

Posted this on another site but what the heck:
These are the types of things you do when you're retired and my wife is away visiting her family(I didn't want to go) for Memorial Day. Had a bunch of wool wads already punched out(36 & 44 for the cap&ball pistols) and a bunch of Gatofeo's lube recipe previously mixed up and decided to put them together.  After fishing the wads out of the melted lube(and burning my hands) and letting them cool, I decided to count them. Surprised to find 836 .44s and 835 .36s. How's that for close work? Remember I'm retired and you happily do dumb things like counting wads--it sure beats working or visiting the relatives. I went to put them away and discovered I had already done a few thousand so todays production got added to the inventory. This will help fullfill my retirement goal of shooting so much I am going to wear out a bunch of guns!! Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day!!
