No, it is not normal to have that much excess lube on the bullets. The NRA's Col. Harrison did an extensive study on cast bullets and lubricants a few years back and most of his conclusions are still valid. Concerning lubricant, the bottom line is that the less you use, the more accurate the load. The problem is that the less you use the more likely you are to lead the barrel. As you already buy the lubricated bullets, there is not much you can do about the amount of it on the bullet except to wipe it off before seating or after. Possibly you could bell the case mouth a bit more prior to seating thereby trapping more lube inside the case. Usually lubing and sizing are done in one operation and any excess lube is cleaned off the bullet as it is sized. Good luck! Quantrill
