coming primarily from a rifle background, quite awhile back i settled on dip lubing the alloy bullets i cast. though i've used lubrisizers and pan lubing, dip lubing has always appealed best to me as actually being faster and easier, with a bit less fuss or mess. if bullet sizing is required, i do that first using a lee push up (i like sizing from the bullet base rather than its nose). then it's time for a lube dip to fill the grease grooves. i make my own lube and use it for both pistol and bpcr alike. i used to single dip, but now i dip lube six pistol or three rifle bullets at a time, using a stiff wire mesh 1/4" screen. there's no reason more could be simultaneously dipped, just will take a stiffer platform and wider lube tin. in the first pic below is a pistol dip platform with six 225 grain .45acp bullets, the other is a rifle dip platform with its front edge turned up and it holds three 525 grain .45-70 bullets. the cookie cut excess lube goes back into the lube pot, so there's minimal lube waste. since only a small tin is needed to hold the melted lube (always done double boiler style), the lube melts real fast for less wasted time. also, the lube sets up on the bullets in just a few minutes after dipped, and is ready to be cookie cut - pan lubing requires more than an hour's wait for the lube to harden. i took some pics of the rifle bullet dip and cookie cutter process - the cutter is a fire formed case with its primer pocket drilled out to accept a dowel rod for pushing out the cookie cut bullet. slip the case over the dipped bullet and push down, shaving off the excess lube. hope some of this might be of interest to some of you folks.
