    Rifle boolits: when I tumble lube, size, then tumble lube again... I will install the GC after the first Tumble lube. Also, if you happen to have a GC that fits loosely? then I will size the boolit, then install the GC, then size again. Good...

    I don't 'grasp' the blocks...I just have my thumb on the sprue plate extension and my index finger on the other side of the blocks and slide the plate open by moving my thumb toward my finger.

    Wattage shouldn't matter if you have a temp controller. I use a magnetic automotive engine block heater, it's 200 watt, mounted to a 3/8" thick steel plate that my lubesizer mounts to, but I don't have a controller on mine ...yet, but have been...

    Cast some 358156's for a loan officer of my acquaintance - sized & loobed, but had to be careful to really squeeze the handles, else the blocks sprung apart, to the extent that I would get fins on the boolits. THOSE were the obvious ones - the ones...

    I use air cooled 94-3-3 for most rifle loads and Mag pistol. Which is very near your COWW with 3% pewter. When I load above 30Kpsi, I will heat treat that alloy.
