Lamb Tallow does not spoil as rapidly as beef tallow, deer tallow, bear gerease or lard.

Lanolin is sticky and works well in the lubes. (Toilet bowl ring is a decent sub for the lanolin/lamb tallow)

There are probably cheaper places but this is where I bought my lanolin.

Y'all were right...

....(no surprise)....

I bought the lube sizer for .452. Bullets go into the case fine.

Anybody want to buy a plastic block, a wood block and a tee handle that will work for starting too-big-bullets into cases?

Doc'Hoy:

To solve a problem like yours, for my three Smith & wessons: .45 Colt, .357 Mag and my .44 mag, I loaded my caseings with gas checked bullets minus the gas check. The gas check grove acts as an addiitional lub grove. In addition, it will permit the bullet to be held stright up while it is entering the case.

Semper Fi.

Clifford

It is a good point you make.

I am still casting bullets with the 90234 from Lee which is a two groove 200 grain RNFP.

It gets good speed but I am thinking a mold with e deeper ring might be a better choice.

Still learning.
