Just looked at. lots of black flakes, cloudy. Have a morning appointment so won't start the clean up until I'm back.
Still see some caked black lead on some. It was pretty nasty when I put it all in.

Success! Pulled them out and put them in a dish of hot soapy water. Rinsed again.
Lots of black but it wiped off with a rag! A little toothbrushing in the small areas and good as new. Lubed and will shoot it tomorrow.
Guy at the dump said they would take the jar with dip in it.

Didn't even think to save it.
Guessing it's a no go for aluminum baffles?
The pilot I just soaked in hoppes. After a day or 2, the lead was visible and I just scrapped it off.
