Yup...And it wasn't build up either. I got a spray can from Midway and tried it on my .30-30 and it seems to do OK on them. But when I started on my .30-06 cases after the 6th one I was in my shop with vice, hammer and drift punch. Said O K...We'll try it again. After the third trip to the shop I put it on the shelf. I did find a good use for One Shot though. It takes the squeek out of my wife's damned rockin' chair...Now I can hear the TV...

Moose2...Probably a good thing you couldn't find that spray wax...givin' yer wife'n all...

well just starting out into the reloading i had got the dies from a brother in law and didnt know how gooed they were, i cleaned them up with a good degreaser to make sure they were clean and just use the rcbs pad lube, and after a couple hundred rounds, i went and did a relube on the pad, and the "drag" went away so..

I used to use the RCBS lube pad but some years ago I switched to the RCBS Case Slick Spray Lube and I like it a lot better.

Based on Bushmaster's problem my friends experience( with a 30-06 too) I think I will stay with CaseSlick..... We could not get the case out and had to send it back to RSBS to get the case removed. The first quesiton they asked on the RCBS hot line when we called to get the return authorization was."Are you using One Shot? Shocked

I've talked to several guys about this and it seems, for some reason, One Shot just doesn't like .30-06 cases...

I saw someone else likes the Imperial Sizing Die wax. I started with RCBS "lube" that came with my kit. If I had to go back to it I would quit reloading. Grapevine sap is less messy. I like the Imperial wax. I've used it for many years now and the can is still over half full. It outlasts anything I've ever seen.

I use the Imperial Sizing Die wax, too, for some things. For case forming or other tough sizing jobs, it does a great job.
For high volume jobs, like sizing 50 cases or more at a session, I use the spray lubes. Hornady One Shot, Midway, whatever I happen to have. I haven't had any problems with them, and they sure are convenient.
For the spray lubes, I do think it's critical to follow the directions- particularly where it says to spray some into the sizing die before you begin sizing.
I've used graphite or mica as a neck sizing lube, too. For very light neck sizing jobs, it works ok.
I haven't used those ink pad set ups in a long, long time- too messy, and no faster than Imperial Wax. Imperial is better, IMO.

Recently, I have been using the Lee lube, which is water soluble. In a pinch, a few drops of STP oil treatment (on the fingers or a pad) works well also. Smile

Bought a small bottle of Pacific Case Lube about a hunnerd years ago...well 25 really. I still have about a third of it left. It is a little sticky and messy, but it does a great job....never had a problem with it. Just give the sizing dies a clean with CRC Brakleen ever now and again and I'm laughin'.

I have used various methods of applying it....fingers, cloth and now I use a pad I made. All have worked well. When I eventually run out of this stuff I'll either be too old to shoot or we'll be using ray guns Laughing Laughing .

Cheers, Vince

Started out with a concoction called Eagle Blood. Fingers, rub it on , (The CASES, Bushy, the cases! Very Happy ) Messy, used the bottle, didn't buy any more. Haven't used a case pad yet, although they have been doing great for lots of years.

Then I tried the Lee stuff, which was o.k.

Next came Hornady spray on stuff, have loved it till now. No more oil dents!, but, I have stuck a couple of cases.

I had a conversation with a young lady at RCBS today (Hmmmm... GIRLS that know stuff about reloading... I like it! Very Happy ) She gave me some technical advice about polishing the inside of my dies, and mentioned in passing that "some" case lubes have a wax base, which can gum up the works. Of course, RCBS spray lube doesn't . I may try some just to see.

The Imperial wax sounds good, too.

Hmmmm...thought I was just going along with what has been done before. Maybe not, though. Will cease forthwith. Thanks.

Cease what forthwith? What did you do? You do something wrong?

"Feelings" Sniper? What are they? I dish it out. If I want to continue to dish it out, I had better be able to take it in return. I will personally let you know when you have hurt my"feelings". Believe me. You will know. I am basically a very happy person. So high on life that I sometimes drive people to drink (jealous I think Very Happy ).

You hurt my "feelings" thinking you hurt my "feelings".

Now!! Where were we??
