I found a guy on a traditional forum who is a retired machinist who makes custom punches to your size for $10 + shipping. Works great!

Do you have said fellows contact info?

I sent him a PM on that forum.

Quite frankly it's a great traditional forum (nothing modern spoken of) and it may be worth your while to join, which you'd need to do to send him a PM there. Here's his contact info:

At one time I used paraffin in my lube mixture and ended up with black powder fouling that could be best described as "nasty asphalt."

Best lube I have found is 60% Beeswax and 40% Bore Butter. The proportions can be varied depending on the time of the year and temperature.
