    Imperial die wax for the case body and dry lube for the neck just wipe your hands clean before touching the primers,
    the lube wipes of the case easily I use a cux multi cloth, if doing 100 cases or more I toss them in the tumbler for an hour or 2,
    Don't use that Lee rubbish it is water based and will rust your dies

    This ^ Exactly what i do, its a easy and effective system i reckon. And both products last forever.

    Yip use both for FL sizing and just a dip in the graphite for NK sizing. That graphite is great for lubricating a sticky door lock too

    Yes. It's just lanolin in isopropyl alcohol I believe. Can make a good approximation with meths and lanokote

    Asking for a lot. Just use less, that's the whole point of the oily-rag-only: oil only gets inside the case if it can run into the case. Less is more.

    Haha, and you've been down the shop complaining loudly about their bad lube still getting your cases stuck, no?

    It's the best
    You just dump your cases in a marg or jimbo container
    Spray a couple of squirts put the lid on and toss
    1 container will do probably 20,000 cases
    I havnt used lube pads for 20 years
    Also the one shot in the can is ok
    The one shot in the pump bottle is junk and will result in stuck cases as it's a different formula
    If your not bulk reloading then the hornady wax or any of the waxes applied on the fingers work well
    Remember to apply some to the inside of the necks. I use a cotton bud

    I was getting stuck cases in Hornady New Dimension dies. Changed the dies and no more problem - not that that helps you with the lube question!
