That red colour is also jewellers rouge a polishing agent they coat the walnut shell with. I think it is better if you just wash the cases after tumbling in warm water and CLR . They will be clean as a whistle.

For the body of the case a waterbased lube like the LEE one is easier to clean up and a dipper of graphite for the neck and I have never had a stuck case, I don't tumble much anymore as there seem to be more issues with that dirt than if you don't tumble.

Tumbling can create more issues than it is worth at times, all for the sake of a shiny case. And if I am collet sizing I don't even clean primer pockets- dead easy reloading.

In a slide of 12 I am more concerned by the result than how good I look on the mound.

Just my humble opinions,

Just triple checking... CLR = Calcium Lime Rust remover?

Is Inox a good lube for inside the barrel if you're storing it for a while?

You've have to check the exact Inox product you're using as they make a dozen different ones.

They're first and foremost lubricants, not surface protection products.

Looking through their stuff I found some do claim to provide some level of corrosion protection, others do not mention it at all so I wouldn't trust it to them.

For long tern you are better off with the good old favorite SWEETS OIL, warm it under your armpit for five minutes before shaking really well to mix the lanolin and wax and don't forget to patch out before using.

I have bought 40 year old trange rifles that were oiled in early seventies whose barrels had been oiled with sweets before being packed away and after some solvent through them they were like new.

Just my humble opinion.

I'd say that. People are using dozens (hundreds probably) of different products that have various original purposes.

If it works, who cares what it was actually intended for really.
