    I have not used CBlue but it is not supposed to be sticky. I'm a hard lube guy so I just use any container that holds 300-400 bullets that I can load from, mostly old 1 lb. whipped butter containers. I size and lube everything right after casting and put it in bulk containers.

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

    I store them in "I Can't Believe it's not Butter" tubs. Don't like it but the DW insists I use it 80% of the time. Real butter Mmmmmmmm!

    Thought real butter was better for you? Did the government flip flop again for the 4th time?

    I used cigar boxes for a long time. As they got harder to get I tried other things. I'm currently using gallon plastic jugs with large screw on lids like coffee creamer and flavored coffee comes in. And no, I don't use it, a friends wife brings them home from work!

    Most of the ones I have will hold 250-300 45 boolits i set them in there on their base and as close together as possible the shorter ones like a 452460 i double stack with a piece of wax paper between. I stack these boxes on a heavy duty shelf in the shop where my little loading room is I have it closed off from the rest of the shop but it still gets dusty in there, these boxes do a good job of keeping the dirt out and the lube frome getting gouged out by other boolits, its a little extra work but its worth it to me.

    I wish there was a like button for this

    I use Ben's red on my rifle bullets and 45/45/10 on my pistol bullets. I store them in plastic peanut butter or mixed nut jars.

    I use these to store my extra bullets that I will load while shooting or storing.
    I keep the rest unlubed and stored in zip lock baggies with details on them.
    I tend to change on a whim what I feel like using on a particular day.
    In case you are wondering I use a pair of tweezers for grabbing the short bullets out.
    Wipe their bums and load.
    I may even wipe lube of the nose section if in the mood.
    A handy towel or rag keeps most lube off most things while single loading cases shutzen style.
    Working for me at the moment.

    I give them a light tumble in BLL after I lube them and store in ziplock bags.
