I had some bullets that I coated a second time due to exposed lead and thin coating. The powder sticks, but increases the diameter of the finished bullet enough that sizing in my Lee bullet Sizer was harder than normal, but not abusive to the press. These were range scrap and hardness was around 9 or 10 BHN. With Lyman # 2 the extra powder coat makes it a real chore to size. But it works. It is far easier to make sure the coating is thicker to start with. But since you are purchasing them coated it would be more of an investment to coat them than to return them.
You can't fix stupid....however ignorance can be cured through education!
