I use Hornady One Shot Sizing Wax, its a lot like Imperial. I just went with it to be a little different and because it mentions "tarnish inhibitors," I started out w/ and REALLY didn't like using the Lee Lube w/ the pad, but that's just me. I think next time I'll go with Imperial because it seems more readily available and "tarnish inhibitors" aren't worth the extra cost for Hornady.

The only cases I have ever stuck have been with Imperial. That said I wouldn't use anything else. For some reason I only manage to stick .223 cases.

I used a variety of lube. I am back to the old RCBS lube and pad. It works for me, no stuck cases and it is pretty fast. I haven't had any trouble with sticking cases.

I have RCBS spray lube that I got at Midway. that has never left me with a stuck case. One shot is not the best out there it has stock 3 223 cases for me before I went too RCBS. I lube all rifle brass from 223 up to 30.06

I use Dillon spray lube on everything from .308 down. .30-06 and larger cases get Imperial sizing die wax.

Bear in mind that lube should be removed before firing, regardless of the instructions on the can.

Redding's Imperial sizing wax is the ticket; all I use nowadays.

Over the winter I put the old RCBS pad away for good. Got a spray bottle, some liquid lanolin and iso heat or other high quality alcohol. Sake before use. Worked well with all the winter reloading.

What you have concocted is quite similar to Dillon spray lube.

Go to the Autozone and get a jar of Motor Magic one of those high viscosity engine lubes. One jar will last one hundred years. It is the same stuff that you pay high prices for marked RCBS or Hornady etc. Use a dry lube on the necks such as Motor Mica from Midway Supply.

That is what I do, and when I run out I will mix my own with alcohol and lanolin, I too tried Hornaday and stuck several cases.

I make my own.

A 4 oz bottle of liquid lanolin and a quart of 97% Isopropyl alcohol and I'm set for a year or two.

Put cases in a 2 gal ziplock bag, spray in 5-6 sprays, close bag and mix a bit. Pour out in a tray and size.

I use the RCBS glycerin lube but I don't use the pad with .223. I clean the brass and put it in a gallon plastic bag. I then squirt I some glycerin lube and stir the brass around in the bag. I let it set at least over night. I check it the next day and if the brass doesn't feel wet or slick I put in some more lube, mix it and let it set another night. When it feels wet or slick I resize the brass. If you plan ahead you can lube up a couple hundred pieces of brass without too much effort. kwg

Do you drink the sake, hot or cold?
