I tumble lubed some bullets for the 1st time today. I used the proper Cool Whip container. Used 45-45-10 from White Label Lube. Put 25 of the N.O.E. TL432-243-RF's in the container, squirted about 1/2 teaspoon on to the bullets and began "swirling". It didn't seem to cover the bullets very well. So I squirted another 1/2 teaspoon. This time it seemed to cover the bullets better, but left A LOT of lube in the container. Took a lot of "swirling" to fill all the grooves, and there was still a lot of brown lube left in the container. I tried 20 bullets next, and then 15. had to add a bit more lube each time. I took the bullets and stood them up on a wax papered pie pan to dry. I'll shove 'em up into a Lee sizer die on Sat.
I thought it took a lot less lube than I used for these 60 bullets ? What did I do wrong? And do you wash the lube out of the cool whip container every time you finish with it ? or just leave to old lube and put on the lid ?
I just viewed Jeff Brown's video on tumble lubing again. The 45-45-10 from White Label Lube is much thinner than the LLA Jeff used. Is the 45-45-10 supposed to be thin as ????? half&half creamer ?
