Made my first bullets, but....

Ok, my first batch of .452 200 gr rn fp, I dropped out on an old sweat shirt and they stuck to it (I guess it wasn't cotton like material), plus only a few looked like keepers, due to cold mold. So I made a second batch, I kept the mold on a hot burner and dropped the bullets in a bucket of cold water. The bullets in the water do not scratch (leave a mark), but they look real good. I can scratch (with my finger nail)the bullets that I dropped on the sweat shirt. My question is, Should I make more bullets by dropping them in the water? Is there anything wrong with dropping them in the water and making them hard?

I'm using a lee 6 mold and a white gas camp stove for heat.
