Cylinder Grease?

I'm looking towards the summer months for cap & ball revolver shooting. In the 110º summer heat, Crisco melts & pours. It isn't solid enough to stay put. I'm waiting for a mix of equal parts of Crisco + solid paraffin to cool to see what kind of texture it has.

Does anyone have any favorite recipes beyond just plain Crisco?

I considered an Alox + Beeswax bullet lube, but it's too pricey to be practical.
