    Dipping Alox

    Surprising, there is very little left on the entry side of the sizing die. I wipe it off on to a rag and use that rag wipe down just about anything metal.

    Re: Dipping Alox

    Look at this link: http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpag...094&t=11082005

    Mica is normally used as a lubricant inside the case neck and that link will explain its use with cast bullets.

    I will keep you posted on the TLC311-165-RF, I hope the heck it will be next week.

    As always RD has tried most of the things that I have questions about and has answers to those questions.

    Re: Dipping Alox

    Where do you get your Mica from and what type of Mica is it? I have some that I use to make wax different colours, would that work.

    Thanks,

    Re: Dipping Alox

    I bought it from MidwayUSA. Some guys use corn starch or other materials.

    I have my bottle of Xlox, Mica, Talc, Blue Mica and the need to make some bullets.

    Michael thanks for the quality work that you do.
