    The lyman 525 are used as a sabot style. Wouldnt making them smoother by tumbling with graphite defeat the purpose? Since now the wad wont be able to grab it as well to impart the spin from the riffling?

    Nah, it didnít have any affect on them. It didnít change the diameter, it just got rid of the casting lines.
