After you get the bullets standing up in bread pans or what ever you use fill the pan to just cover the grooves with melted lube plus a little.
EDIT- For problems with incomplete lube fill in the grooves: Some lube types fill just fine. Others have trouble and need some help. Bullet design has something to do with this too.
In addition to just filling the pan with room temp bullets, heating the bullets once they are placed in the pan can help completely fill the GG's with lube. How much problem voids are is somewhat dependent on the kind of lube you use. With some lube types, small voids or air bubbles show as missing lube in segments of the groove. That does not help accuracy. By heating the bullets in the pan up to 135F-175F fully filled in GG and happy bullets are produced.
For voids caused be lube pull out when the bullets are removed (pushed out of the lube cake) try removing them when it is colder or warmer..... ...in other words try a different temp than what is not working now.
Sometimes this can help.
For tough lube release from the pan, stick it in the freezer for 15 or 30 minutes.
Generally, heat the bullets a little before pouring the melted lube in the pan and chill for release when wanting to get the lube cake out of the pan. Then allow to warm to room temp.
