Quantrill. I think, if memory serves, that Col Harrisons comments were directed to the NRA's 50-50 Alox-beeswax lube. The new hard lubes found on most commecial cast bullets don't seem to give that problem, at least not for me. I don't use commercial bullets. I cast and lube my own, and I will not use the NRA formula at all anymore. it smells bad. It runs and gets hard to work with during our southern Arizona summers. it is smoky as hell, and makes your firearm all smoked up. The only good thing I have found with it, is it does promote good accuracy with some rifle loads.
My suggestion to the fellow with the excessive lube problem. Wipe your ammo down and get rid of the excess. I do.
