I have always wondered if running them thru a tumbler again is either dangerous or might change the COAL.

Hornady claims their newest case size lube will not affect primers or powder. I am learey but if you sealed the primers and put some on a rag to wipe down the outside of the ammo but not the face of the primer it would work. Excess lube is bad juju on ammo so probably a good idea to wipe off the excess with a dry rag. I would keep the ammo standing bullet up in a compartmentalized plastic box like MTM. I would only keep them for maybe two years and then shoot 'em up. Long term storage involves clean ammo, sealed plastic bags, silica gel, and a system to displace the air with a shot of nitrogen from a bottle.

Funny thing, WW II self-loading cannons had a wick that wiped oil onto the shells as they were fed into the gun tube. Didn't hurt them.
