Thanks for the report .45. I am going out today to mix up some of that Ed's Red. Anyone know where you get anhydrous lanolin? I can just see me going into the local Wal-Mart Pharmacy and asking.......Reminds me of the time as a kid I asked the druggist for some Kodak... and she hands me a box of Kotex Napkins. Could have died..45 COLT said:I mixed up 4 gallons of "Ed's Red", without the lanolin. Works pretty good on bore cleanup, also takes off cosmoline real well. Buying the stuff by the gallon instead of quart made it pretty inexpensive.
