I've been reloading for about 12 yrs and have only done jacketed bullets. Recently I found some hard cast 250 gr .44 bullets that I want to load for my Ruger SR in 44 mag.
When I opened the package I couldn't believe how much lube was on the bullets. They felt tacky and it seemed excessive. But like I said this is my first experience and I don't know if this is normal or not. Do the bullets require any further prep or are they ready to go as is?
I appreciate any input on this matter. It's like learning to walk all over again.
