    ive learned a little lube goes a long way, so im just using a small amount on the casings, do you guys wipe them down after or just leave what little is there alone?

    if it's fmj I retumble them for 20 minutes after they are loaded. Removes all the lube, puts the final polish, and shakes and loose primers out. (if primer pocket is loose pimer will go in but if you try to shoot in a gun, recoil may work primer out while in the mag causeing super death jam.)

    If it's molly bullets or jhp's I take a rag and spray lightly with brake cleaner. Then I like up 5 or so round in a column and roll then back and forth. This removes the lube also.

    If you use hornaday one shot they say you do not need to remove the lube but I do anyway because I'm a anal nut job about my ammo.

    yes if full metal jacket and not hollow points. The media gets caught in the hollow points, or rubs off the molly or screws up the lead. On a jacketed bullet it just polishes it.
