So:
Pure Mutton Tallow, Olive oil, Olive oil and Bees wax.
All blow out.
I am soaking the patches, melting the lube into them.
Only thing that has not was Lucas gun oil.
Varied patch and ball thickness.
Not the gun, this is with multiple guns.
So, what you guys using?

Have you tried a felt wad? T7 is pretty hot and if theres any roughness or burrs, that is going to play havoc on your patches.

No felt wad, but this is 3 rifles and a pistol.
The gun lube patches held up great.

buy medium weight pure linen tight weave cloth. make your patches out of that material and no more blown patches.

Where to get, the fabric stores here don't know what I am asking for.
I have been using pillow ticking and drill material.
When I ask for linen the show me thin not tight weave.
