Do that enough times, and it will stay there and build up.
I haven't loaded lead in over a year, so this is kind of weird. I'm using polymer coated bullets now, I don't know what the deal is. It's not red, which is the color of the coating. I also didn't realize how many rounds I've loaded since I cleaned them last.

Installed a hydraulic buffer system in my AR-9.
Went and shot it and all I can say is DAMN. It rocks.

Started to load some .223, and 6 rounds in broke the indexing wheel on my Hornady LnL. Reloading was not friendly to me today

Loaded some 9 x 18 Makarov rounds last night and just replaced the media in my vibrating tumbler. Gonna spend the afternoon decapping some 5.56/.223 and getting them cleaned and prepped.
