But as I have seen here, they do have some type of coating on the bullets. Thanks!
The burnt primer compounds are probably the worst of it, hand washing fixes most shooting issues.
Yes all 22 LR bullets have a coating of some formula of wax. lead colored bullets generally have coloring in the coating that can leave residue on your hands. Copper wash bullets also have wax on them. Federal Automatch has been decent practice ammo for me. Better than average accuracy. I have downloaded a book on it from another forum.
It has never shoot well for me in any of more than a dozen 22LR firearms I've shot it in. I still have half a box from 2014 I can't seem to get rid of.
Back to the OP's question...yes it's dry lubed.
The new boxes give me about a 20% failure rate. I'll use it for practice but never for any competitions. It's a real shame. I wish I still had a supply of the older ammo.
The lube is a dry lube and doesn't come loose on my fingers. It does load well in my McFadden Ultimate Clip Loader.
My Ruger Mark IV 22/45 like the stuff. I see no buildup of lube when I go to clean my gun at the end of a match.
