A couple of questions

Post by brow_tines on Mon Apr 23, 2012 8:57 am

I'm using Lee tumble tube bullets

1. Does everyone lube/resize/then lube again ?
2. What lube does everyone prefer lla/rooster jacket/or the lla 45/45/10 mix?
3. How long do ya let the lube dry before resizing/loading ?
4. Do ya stand the bullets up to dry?

With Lee tumble lube bullets.... post sizing is not needed. Note: other type bullets that are tumble lubed will need to be sized.

I use the Lee tumble lube.(liquid Alox)

I tumble once and let spread them out on wax paper to dry overnight.
Then tumble a second time and stand them on the bases to dry.

The next day they should be ready to load up or store.

Do in batches as large as you can, so you don't have to do it again for awhile.

You are finally comfortable with your casting capabilities when you find yourself casting boolits with sandals on!

Lee Liquid Alox Tumble them using coffee cans.... Pretty much like Hawcer. Even tho the Tumble Lube designs doesn't require sizing, I already had the lee sizer die kit, I just lubed them with a light coat, sized then relubed afterwards so that the sizing die did not lead up. Another trick would be to take some LLA onto a qtip and lube the inside of the size die with it and then just size and lube afterwards...

I use LLA. Firstly the bullets are rolled over the case lubricator pad and then are sized and tumble lubed.
