    Petander,
    I don't know any other way to get rid of other lubes except re-melt and cast. Most cost effective and safest way.
    All other type cleaners cause major problems, and toxicity problems.
    Then there is waste disposal problems.
    Sorry, there is no 100% effective way to clean cast that would be regarded as producing a clean alloy from of all residues.
    Simply re-melt, cast, and Acid etch to get best results, especially if your alloy is an unknown composition with possible contaminants.
    You proved that this simple refining, (acid wash) actually works, and you can coat & use "unknown" alloys successfully.

    I’ve successfully removed wax lube and then successfully re-coated with HT and PC paints. I put lubed bullets into a quart glass jar, covered bullets with paint thinner, put lid on and allowed to soak over night, shaking the jar a few random times during the process. Wax will be disssolved and liquid can be pored off and discarded responsibly. Then fill jar 1/3 full with acetone, shake and discard acetone. Repeat acetone rinse. Pore bullets onto a clean towel, while boolits are still wet then slosh around in towel. Put boolits into a clean jar and repeat acetone rinse third time. Pour onto clean paper towels to dry and your done. It’s a pain to do but it has worked well for me the few times I’ve done it with waxed bullets.

    Any others here doing 45-70 Hi-Tek?

    I have a long nice history with cast & 1895 but haven't had a Marlin for some years.
    I have used Hi Tek on plenty of my 45-70 bullets for use in my 1895 SBL.

    In the pic below you can see the NOE collar button and the NOE 350 gr. WFN coated in HiTek Bronze

    A recent favorite of mine is the NOE 354 HTC which is a smooth bullet that can be used in both the 458 SOCOM and the 45-70. I got it for the SOCOM but found it shoots really well in my SBL.

    Shot some sub 4 inch groups at 50 yards out of my new trubor today with my home made zombie green 122 fp's.

    Pretty happy with that.

    Yes...

    5 grains of AP70 with the 122 grain FP which made 130pf. It's for action match, I'm not allowed to shoot major on our plate rack.

    After I ported the barrel on my old gun it wouldn't shoot minor anymore, hence the trubor purchase.

    I'll test out some major loads next week. I've been using 9.2 grains of AP100 with the tiger sharks, was planning on starting around 8.5 and going from there.

    I just shot 2 10 round groups on a single IPSC target today, it'd be nice to try on a target with a better aiming reference.

    Gotta work out a 9mm load too and change my dies around.
