I use imperial and also if I'm short or run out of imperial, mink oil for shoes work just as well.

I bought a small (about 5oz) bottle of Pacific sizing lube about 30 yrs ago and its still going and works a treat. Only thing is the cleanup takes a little time.

I was thinking I would get some Hornady one shot and try that but I have a good amount of RCBS lube.

Started on a bottle of RCBS lube a few years back, still got about half a bottle left.
You only needed a few drops on the lube pad to do a whole lot of brass..

Some Lee stuff came with some lube in tooth paste tubes that you supposed to rub onto your finger and then transfer to the cases.
Tried some, never like them.

RCBS water soluble for FL sizing, Imperial for NK sizing or Dillon spray when re-loading handgun cases on a progressive press !!!

I use Turtle wax cream car polish on a lube pad. After sizing I put them in the tumbler, and they clean up very well.

Imperial for most cases but I've used both RCBS & Lee on 5.56x45 as it's an easy case to resize.
Spray stuff's too expensive & not IME particularly effective.

I have a small plastic bottle of RCBS lube that I have had forever. I tried using it but it was terrible to get off the cases and it was prone to "over-lubing" the neck and shoulder of cases leaving those dents in the shoulders. I found that "cutting it" with some ATF solved both problems. To be completely honest I don't use it a lot - just when I am full length sizing new cases or those that have never been fired in my guns. After the initial full length sizing I use the carbide neck sizing dies and don't lube at all.

Lee Case Lube.

I apply it with my fingers, I also wear surgical gloves.

It doesn't degrade powder or primers, it's water soluable, so leave it on, wipe it off or tumble it off. I tumble.

RCBS lube and pad. Has been working for me for the last 25 years. No problem with over lubing and no lube dents. Cleanup is easy. Wipe the cases down with a dry rag and run them through the tumbler then load them.

I tried One Shot and ended up with several stuck .30-06 cases in the resizing die. Did find out that it makes a great lube for my wife's rocking chair. Stops squeeks real good.

Have not tied the other case lubes...

RCBS lube and pad also, I do dip the neck of about every 10th piece in graphite. I tried the Hornady One Shot and was having problems with stuck 7mm Mag case's and ended up pulling the base of one, so in the garbage it went.

my dad , who has been reloading for close to 68 years, uses of all things STP engine treatment! it just works, and he has rounds that he loaded decades ago that fire fine. So I dont think there is any problem with contamination or seep with it. He puts a little on a rag and can use it for dozens of rounds before he needs to recharge the rag with STP. He has used the same bottle for about 8 years now and still has a few years left in it. At 81 he still loads a couple hundred rounds a month. Mostly for other people cause his hands wont let him really shoot anymore, but he still pops a few off on the lighter pull guns he has.

I also use STP and have for years now too.
