I've had pretty good success so far wrapping 45/70 boolits and lubing with Redwing mink oil and pushing back through a Lee sizer I honed out to .4595. Today I tried wrapping some .35 caliber boolits and then pushing through Lyman lubersizer,with .360 H&I die installed. No luck so far. Just pushes the boolit through the paper. Tried inverting the bullet and pushing through nose first. Still just pushes bullet through paper. I'm using 2 wraps tracing paper, 9#, I think. Same paper I've used with 45/70. Lee dies are not required to size down wrapped boolits are they? I was thinking some folks were using Lyman and RCBS sizers to resize after wrapping. Do I need to use a different lubricant?
