    Found a place on Gunbroker that has a resonable priced "unlubed" Maxi Balls in those calibers. He also sell bricks of excellent black powder lube. I had been using the "Yellow Stuff" to lube them as I load the gun. What a P.I.T.A. that is! So I took a .30-06 case and ran it through my 9.3x62 sizing die, then cut the case off at the bottom. The side sized 9.3 fits the .32 perfectly, and guess what the bottom cut size fits the .36. I microwave the lube then pour it over the bullets in their small pie tin. After the lube hardens I use my homemade bullet cutter to cut them from the hardened lube. I can reuse the leftover lube with my next batch.

    A friend suggested that I could paper wrap individual bullets for later use. That's a good idea too as that way my bullet pouch doesn't get messy with lube. Works for hunting. I have small plastic boxes to store the lubed bullets for going to the range. Hope this helps someone......:D
