    Good scoop, thank you Don. I'm gonna give wet another go again.

    Frank, Kenny Wasserburger and Ian Egbert both have a good video of how they do it. I do something similar. You can just set them in one of those plastic pistol ammunition trays, but often the paper will slump a little bit doing that. Those electric candle warmers work good, don't know what they cost now but when I bought mine off of Amazon several years back they came in a 2 pack for 12$
    you can tell if you left them on the warmer a little to long they can get a bit ouchy to pick up, but dang they'll be dry enough to load right then and there. LOL
    Long range rules, the rest drool.

    Got a candle warmer coming off Amazon for $7.

    I expect I'll need to change the patch length a bit as it'll stretch a bit when wet.

    If your gentle with them and just roll the patch on they don’t stretch much
