My mechanics at work use those type. Since I use a different grease, I usually put the grease in a ziploc bag and pack away.

I carry mine with me..the palm of my hand. Blob of grease in a cupped hand, slide the bearing across your palm until it comes out the other side of the race.

I haven't hand packed a bearing since I started using the hubs with a grease fitting in the rear. Just install dry bearings, hand tighten the nut and start pumping in the grease. You can see the grease come through the bearings. It's worked for years.

I still like the old fashioned way. Two hands and a blob of grease.
