These were "dipped" in LLA (Lee Liquid Alox),
If you want a tumble lube that dries in less than an hour without any tackiness, get some Johnsons Paste Wax in the can. Melt some into a cup, mix in about 25% mineral spirits to thin it out, use as tumble lube. Much easier on your sizing/seating dies too.
It tends to solidify once cooled off, so it needs to be melted again, just run the container under hot water for a couple minutes.
