but this time I threw them through the tumbler to get excess lube and such off them. Now my loads are.leading like there isnt any lube at all.
With handloads, when you change one thing, you change everything.
Since we're in the cast bullet forum, I assume that your bullets were lubed, then you put them in the tumbler? Or did you put the whole cartridge in the tumbler?
At any rate, it worked fine before you started using the tumbler. That's what you changed and that's what is different.
