I use One Shot spray lube I like it. It's not as messy as rolling the cases on the pad and it works just fine Very Happy ..........

Never had much luck with One Shot, had to use alot, alot of waste in overspray and kept getting the occasional stuck case. I prefer Imperial to all others. I have tried about everything they sell for that purpose and still keep going back to Imperial....$5 worth of it will last a lifetime.

I use RCBS case lube and it works fine. The key is to use a little and avoid grease dents. Take care...

+1, RCBS case lube. If used properly with a pad, it may be among the least expensive and effective I have tried, although, I have no doubts other lubes work well. Imperial gets rave reviews from my friends as well.

Once the loaded rounds have been assembled, I roll them on an old terry cloth towel to remove excess lube. By excess, I mean any remaining lube on the case no matter how slight. Part of the job of the brass is to cling to the chamber walls under firing. If there is any degree of lube left on the loaded round, upon firing the brass doesn't "grip" the chamber as well as it should and results in increased and excess thrust on the bolt face. That, in turn, can lead to premature wear on the rifle's action.

Doesn't take much skill to operate a spray can....but some can complicate things just for the sake doing so, I guess.

A shot of One Shot in the base of the sizer die and a quick sweep over a load block is all that's needed.

But....

It takes a shallow load block. As with any lube, lubing the base area of the case is just as important as the neck/shoulder. Most stuck cases are caused from not lubing the base of the case enough.

A "quick sweep" doesn't mean it goes on by magic nor from only one side.

I shoot it on all four sides, aiming it mostly at the neck interior and the "overspray" lubes the rest of the case.

ALL lubes work, that's hard to dispute as there are too many people with too many favorites.

Where One Shot shines above the rest is that it goes on quick(ask yourself how fast can you lube 100 cases with RCBS or Imperial), does a good job lubing as it's very thin and won't leave lube dents, It's dry to the touch when sizing, and is removed very easily.

I use One Shot because, for years I used RCBS Sticky Goo. I put up with the stickyness of that stuff for too long. You work with cases all slimmy which makes a mess and it easily picks up dirt and grit you don't want run through a die. It must also be removed from the cases and that requires a lot of rubbing/wiping or washing with water.

One Shot saves me a lot of time, and saves me a lot of headache about over lubing........

I've heard Imperial is awesome stuff but have never tried it so I can't say anything about it's lubing quality. It's slow to put on though according to those I've talked to about it and probably is slow to remove as well......

I mix my own up from lanolin and 98% isopropyl. One of the reasons I reload is to save money and this helps.

I use One Shot Dimitri.
I put my brass {Thanks Bushy} Embarassed Embarassed on a cookie sheet and spray quite a bit, then I roll the bullets back and forth a little. It works great.
I have used RCBS for forty years, and just started using the One Shot about a year ago, because I got lazy in my old age. If you do go with RCBS be VERY careful not to touch the inside of your primers with sticky fingers. It could cause the primer not to fire.
The RCBS takes longer, but does a great job.
I've never heard of Imperial, but I will have to look for it and give it a try.
A guy can always find something that works better.

You can always buy some Carbide dies, and then you don't have to lube at all.

Eric

Hey Bushy,
If a guy sprayed the "bullets" with one shot, would they go faster because they are slick??? Insane

Eric Very Happy

I use Lee lube.. on a wadded up old piece of cloth. Just grab them and rub them a bit with the cloth.
Seems to works alright.
