    Some of us, who cast our own, like to use tallow as one of the bullet lube ingredients for black powder cartridges.

    I have had success using mink and beef tallow but I prefer to use lamb tallow if possible.

    Sometimes it is a little hard to get hold of.

    I assume that because the seasons are reversed down under it is now starting to come on the market again. I just ordered several pails from these guys: http://www.grasslandbeef.com/Categories.bok?category=Grassland+Lamb
