Bullet lube when seating?

Do you like to lube your bullets before you seat them, or no.
Feel free to share why, with what lube and your experiences with either.

If you use moly or any type of bullet coating please check yes.

Re: Bullet lube when seating?

After watching Shawn Carlock's video on long range reloading I started using the Imperial dry graphite lube of my necks right before charging and seating. I noticed a difference right away in how much smoother the bullets went in with what seems to be more consistent pressure.

Would silicone such as 1 shot work? Spray it on, let it dry, seat? Never have lubed.

I started using the dry graphite to neck size and have read many things about guys using it for bullet seating. Now every slight jar in the press handle while seating is screaming at me.

Re: Bullet lube when seating?

Thanks for starting this thread!

I don't currently use any lube but I've thought about trying it... for only $6 @ Midway, why not?

My 7 RM brass squeaks and jerks bad coming out of the FL sizing die. Hope it helps there as well.

Thanks!

I think it might get good. There has to be more members like me and you that are debating this.
