I have used Johnsons past wax to coat my bullets. Put a little dab in a round plastic bowl with a top and put 25 or 30 bullets in it and swirl them around to coat them then pore them out on a towel to to dry.

Re: Bullet lube when seating?

All my bullets are HBN coated, so that is one form of lube.

I've been dipping new or sonic cleaned brass in dry neck sizer lube as well, it stopped the squeaky seating.

I just added anneal every time instead of every 4th time (or so) and found that dry neck lube helps there as well.

Works for me for now.

Have any of you noticed this reducing cold weld of necks to the bullets after setting up for a while?
