Will a Lyman 450 lubricate Lee tumble lube bullets?? I don't like alox tumble lube as I find it too messy. There is a mold I am considering bu it is only offered in TL so I am hoping my 450 could fill those tumble lube grooves.

I've tried it when I got my first luber/sizer. Ditn't feel I got enough lube on the bullet to do any good and had leading problems. Got new molds to use that had the right grooves and problem ended. I also have a couple of bullet shaped that are made with TL grooves that I wish had regular grooves.

That is what I was thinking would happen as from what I understand TL bullets are meant to be shot as cast and it seems sizing would shear and smear the tiny lube bands. I know a lot of people swear by TL bullets but I bought some once and didn't like them.

Grooves are not deep enough for a conventional lube/sizer. Lee says use as cast.
