    you'll definitely need 2 lubes. I do up here but not as far up the heat index. you'd do well with the red/blue above 50 and something much softer below.

    yes I don't try for a heavy coat either. I did at first then realized I wasn't getting a good smooth coating. make sure you put a little lube on them before you size them. it sucks melting drilling beating them out of the die.
