I received a couple of hundred .45 Maxi's that were prelubed but dried out. Mineral spirits was suggested here and worked pretty good tho still a bit greasy with old lube residual. Simple Green full strength and shake worked. I know they are shootable now but look "frosted" for lack of a better word. Not shiny like new casts. Am I correct that the "frost" represents lead oxide? If so, seems like I should get rid of it or reduce it. Was thinking of running through my tumbler with corn cob or walnut shell media and polishing powder then throw the media away. Another option might be to use Alox to seal them up? Or am I overthinking it?
Ok I'm ready -- flame away...
