    powder coat?, that seems like a bit too much work for me, not that I don't admire them, especially being able to choose any color you want

    Look at your patch, silver looking sparkles are a dead give away if it was lead?
    Hell, I was there!

    not that I saw, just looked black... so is this residue a problem? or just something I need to clean when it gets built up, if it does build up, if it IS lube,it may smear like what I saw, but not build up more because succeeding shots would keep it down. still need to find out if lee's alox will help with this, by that I mean applying it on top of the regular lube

    It's a problem if it becomes a problem... light fouling can become heavy fouling if long strings are fired without cleaning, especially adding a very hot barrel into the equation. For that, you'll have to try it and see (or just avoid the problem).
    I give loading advice based on my actual results in factory rifles with standard chambers, twist rates and basic accurizing.
    My goals for using cast boolits are lots of good, cheap, and reasonably accurate shooting, while avoiding overly tedious loading processes.

    Do you trust your casting thermometer?
