    Re: Dipping Alox

    Will this method also work for cast bullets without the micro bands? I know there is less surface area for the Alox to cling to but it seems like it would work..

    Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.

    The images from the first post seem to have vanished, this was one of the teaching aids that I had for people wanting to do tumble lube.

    I can skip the 2nd dip Michael mentions because of the consistency of my 1/2alox 1/2 lard lube. I install the gas checks, then dip my bullets in lube warmed in a crock pot, then size the bullets while the lube is still warm, and wipe off any excess lube from the bullet nose before I air dry my dipped bullets. The lube forms a ring around the bottom of my sizer which I wipe off and return to the crock pot about every 10 bullets. I use Rotometals Lyman #2 alloy for my cast .444 bullets. They are sized very little by my Lee .432 sizer, so the sizer mainly gets the excess lube of my bullets. The only reason I started using the lard was because I had it. It eliminated needing mineral spirits to thin down the alox. I use a rag with 30wt oil on it to wipe off the bullet nose when comes out of the top of the sizer, again because oil is what I had when I started.
