Waxy Coating on Rimfire Ammo
Just got a Ruger SR22, and I finally found some Eley 22LR in stock online at a reasonable price. But the rounds seem to have an unusual amount of waxy coating on them... nothing you can see, but after loading a magazine it leaves a fairly substantial residue on my hands. It's not really oily, more waxy.
Is that normal? The ammo is a couple of years old if the manufacture date on the box is to be believed. Should I kinda wipe these things down a little as I load them?
