    I cast boolits with a mould. The green /blue stuff on cheese is mold . My hair has gray in it. NOE calls them moulds and I like NOE moulds . And that's all I have to say on that.

    Any of the spray on Dry Lubes work well on powder measures. And seem to help with rust. I use the stuff on my boolit moulds and things I don't want oily or greasy.
