I know, I know another casting question, sorry.
I am lubing my cast bullets with Lee Alox tumble lube. Besides being messy, smelly and sticky, I like it.
I thinned it down with a little mineral spirits to make it a little easier to work with, let it sit to dry. Dry, good one
I sized the bullets in the Lee sizing die and lubed them again, then let them dry overnight to a nice sticky film.
I have a feeling that this stuff is going to be tacky and sticky forever or until it gets covered with dirt, dust and crap. Am I right?
My question is, after my bullets are seated is there any reason to keep the exposed part of the bullet covered with the Alox? Can I just wipe it off or does it need to cover the entire bullet to do it's job?
