    I melted down #65 of bullets (all cast with lube and gas checks) and made ingots.

    I gotta say, I would rather melt down wheel weights than lubed and gas checked bullets!! YUCK!

    No sir! These had some kind of grease that would not burn off, it stuck to the cast iron pot, my stirring spoon and no amount of fluxing would clarify it out. I had to use a TS4000 straight onto the puddle and carbonize it to remove it from the pot. I am guessing it is some kind of synthetic grease? Nothing like a beeswax and olive oil, Vaseline or paraffin.

    Awful stuff!

    I seem to remember that Ben's Red has lithium grease and transmission fluid... Maybe something like that?

    Nothing yet, still unpacking from a recent trip. But after while when it warms up I'll sort a coffee can of wheel weights that a buddy dropped off for me while we were away. Networking!!! It works!!!
