You might try calling Lyman and ask them which nose punch to use for the specific cast bullets you wish to size. In some cases, you can use a flat nose punch and push the bullets into the lubrisizer upside down. Don't know if that will work with the Lyman unit or not. Lyman tech support should be able to help you work out a solution.

Tumble lube bullets are designed to be used "as cast" and lubricated with liquid Alox. See the instruction sheet that came with the mold. If you don't have it anymore you can check Lee Precisions website and download a copy.

Look to the left side of the page for "Top Punch Reference".

Good luck!
