It would be the same, except usually when you load a cylinder full, you shoot it soon, with cartridges you might not use them for weeks or longer, depending on how much you load at a time. I usually reload for a few hrs and make several shells, that'll last me several weeks. Proper storage away from heat will prevent contamination. I've got a few hundred 38's that were lubed with Alox and sat in a car trunk for a few days(summer), these were with modern powder and they started squibbing, still pulling and reloading them, a few at a time. If you tumble lube, wipe the base of the bullet before loading.
