    This guy is pretty good. Gets off topic a bit on resizing but demos different case lubes. I like the way he takes a pinch of Lee lube, dabs the bottom of a plastic food storage container then proceeds to lube 50 cases at once. I'm going to have to try that. He completely loads the round, crimped and all then washes them with hot water and a dab of Dawn.

    I purchased mine on Amazon, you will see 99% alcohol and spray bottles purchased together with it.
    I agree with using imperial wax for small batches or extreme sizing, but when you are loading a few hundred to a couple thousand the lanolin alcohol mix is the ticket.
    I run it at a 12:1 ratio and spray the cases in a shallow cardboard box getting the whole case including the mouth coated with it. let it dry a few minutes and go to town.
    I clean it off in the wet tumbler with stainless pins, dawn and lemishine.
    There is a large thread on another web site with the title "Case lube for cheap [email protected]" lots of info on making and using it,they claim it is similar to the Dillion spray lube.

    Good luck

    A friend told me to try Mink oil.
    Man that stuff works great and is cheap, and
    you don't get funny looks from the 50 yo at the register.

    Mink Oil? Who ever heard of a Squeaky Mink, fer cryin' out loud.

    This thread has set a new titillation threshold, or I miss my guess. Nipple creams, rubbing your brass, sheep, Everclear blends, jiminy Christmas, I just buy a bottle of Dillon spray lube every ten years and don't have to worry about offending the nearest pharmaceutical matron. And all I can tell you about Everclear is that when you mix it with Hawaiian Punch, your vomit will take the paint off anything from a basement floor to a '62 Corvair. Trust me.

    I just keep it simple. Wipe some Hornday Unique on my finger and go to town staying well away from the shoulder. Been working on the same tub of unique since July of 2009. Might buy something new just for the heck of it.
