    I've been using a brass tube with a handle soldered on to push down on the bullets in the pan after the lube cools a bit. It's just slightly bigger than the diameter of the stop ring so I hardly ever damage one. They're flat point so I just keep pushing down until they start coming out the top. It gets tougher as the lube cools more but I work in small bathes. I use the small plastic bubble pack stuff that comes on just about anything you buy now as the pan. Whatever is left over I just push right out of the bubble pack and into the double boiler. Yes, there is a little extra lube on the bullet but it's a stop ring bullet and when I push it into the case the extra skives off!

    I tumble lube everything, for handguns or rifles. I also shoot them as cast without sizing. No sizer sizes them closer to my barrels than my barrels do.

    that's fine, just not for bpcr. i gave up on bpcr greasers and prefer paper patching. for handguns, i've moved on to hit-tec coating and no lube mess from dipping or tumbling - less smoke and barrel residue, too.
