I've lubed enough Bullets lately that I've finished out the last of the 50/50 in my old Lyman 450 and am using WLL BAC, shoot's clean & very little smoke.
That being said, the 1000 rounds of .44mag Cowboy ammo that I loaded up for my Chiropractor Buddy is now getting shot up. I loaded new starline brass with a N.O.E. #TL432-240-RF cast of #2, sized in a Lee .430 sizer and lubed with WLL 45/45/10. they end up being .4305dia.
My Buddy has fired about 350rds in Matches and is very happy with the easier clean-up. I guess maybe his previous bullet source didn't cast/size/lube properly. There is no longer any leading problem.
I don't know if it's the lube or the Beautifully/Perfectly Bullets cast by My humble self.
It's my 1st experience with Tumble Lubing. Works pretty darn good.
I've also mastered Powder Coating.
But I'm not giving up My old Lyman 450. I think I just like doing it the way I grew up using my DAD'S Star & Lyman 45.
Something very satisfying about Loading/Shooting a bullet Lubed/Sized in a yellow Brass case. Kinda a link to the old Buffalo hunters and my Grandfather teaching his Sons about HandLoading using a Single cavity mold, pan lubing and a 310 tong tool.

I also drool in my sleep. I firmly believe that true happiness is a warm gun. Did I mention how much I HATE auto-correct on this blasted tablet.
