Nice pics by Armoredman.

I love pan lubing. I started out with some Lee six banger aluminum molds for my 9mm and 45's and was having all different size boolits drop out of the mold. So I ran them through a Lyman 4500 lubesizer. Much more mess and hassle then it is worth.

So the next step was to slug my bores and order a 0.002" oversize five banger aluminum mold from the good folds at Accurate Molds. The boolits drop at just the size that was ordered and I don't have to size anymore.

For lubing I've tried tumble lube and lubrisize lubing and pan lubing. I love pan lubing. I heat my mixture of lube on low heat (#3) on the kitchen stove and also preheat the bullets and pan they sit in so the lube flows easier once poured into the lubing pan. Once the lube starts to set up I put it into the freezer for about 20 minutes. This sets up the lube really well and the bullets pop out of the pan using an oversized brass case with no mess or fuss. For me pan lubing is the way to go.

If you haven't looked up a great website called www.castboolits.gunloads.com you should. They have answers to all the casting and reloading questions you might have and are very friendly. Good luck.
