    160 or 190 Carnuba Red?

    I am going to switch from Red to Commercial Red. As I do not want sticky at all. will be used in 380-38spl 9mm 45acp 30-06 300Blk etc.
    I do have a heater so no problem there
    Is the 160 still sticky or should i go full 190 asking from guys who have used these

    The 160 is not sticky if you let it dry 10 minutes before packing the boolits

    In my opinion Carnuba Red isn't sticky either, but for comercial production I liked the 160 better.

    It's to sticky for bulk storage in an ammo cans for me. It's a lot better than 2500+. But it's still sticky and can migrate to other bullets. If you stack them neatly there isn't a problem. I throw them in the can loose so there in lies the problem.

    Yes i went to Red from BAC, as was having to wipe all pistol bullets after loading. The Red is way better but still have to clean off after loading.
    Months after sized with REd picing them up leaves sticky stuff on ya fingers
    So was looking at Harder Red Carnuba to not have to. The Red works well in all pistol and rifle as it should! It is great lube.
    Maybe I got off batch?
    I do plenty and store them in a plastic bin with lid and then run a lot of pistol ammo so gets to be work to wipe them. If it was just a few rifle it would be fine. It is great lube! I am also going Progressive Press and Cast bullets.
    Thus the harder lube

    Makes me wonder how I've stayed with NRA 50-50 lube all these years!
