So when you run a bunch of powder through the measure it "lubes" it? weird!
Smokeless powder is coated in powdered graphite to help it flow better, so that must be what lubes the powder measure. I haven't tried cleaning any granules to find out, but my understanding is that it's the graphite that gives smokeless powder its typical dark gray color - without it, it would be a sort of translucent yellowish-white.
