+1 love Dillon case lube. Tried Hornady, RCBS, and Redding and none of them work like Dillon.

Be sure to let it dry before sizing - I found that if I size wet (dry at the end) I get inconsistent sizing especially bumping of the shoulder.

Had a stuck case, work on and off all day trying to free,,3006 in Hornady die.
Finally light bulb went off, broke out the MAP torch, licked the case with flame and dink out came the case... Hornady reccommended all kinds of stuff and or send back to factory. No one in any loading book talked about heating... what do think????/

p>S> forgot to lube.... reason for the stuck case.

Iíve been using the alcohol lanolin mix for about a year and it works great. I get the 99% alcohol at my drug store, they have to order it. I spray the brass and use it right away and on occasion left the brass till the next day and have no need to respray. Rather than tumbling the brass to get the lube off I place it in a sonic cleaner with Simple Green. This removes the lube in the primer pockets.

Easiest source of 99% alcohol is ISO Heet gas treatment (%99 isopropyl alcohol), the red bottle, at any auto parts store.
I use that in my lanolin/alcohol mixture in an old windex spray bottle.
Put the brass in a grocery store plastic bag, spray onto the brass several times, close it and shake/stir the brass. Dump on an old
baking pan so the alcohol can evaporate.
