338EDGE Brass PROBLEM!!!!!

MARRY CHRISTMAS, to all of you...

Ok I need your help guys...
I need help to fix this problem.
I just start to reload for 338edge a brand new brass NOSLER(300rum) with RCBC 338EDGE FL die.

After lubricate the case with oil, and using FL die, I got small residue as powder on neck area of the brass.

If I run the same round on FL DIE again EVERY TIME I GOT RINGS OF RESIGUE AS IN PHOTO.

Please advise what I did wrong!!!!

See photo bellow... (small pawder residue is from 1st run, and the rings ar from every time when I run the same case on FL Die.)



Thank you
Chris

Are you using 300RUM brass or 375RUM brass?

300,

I can't figure out what you're talking about. Could you restate the situation and question please? Thanks.

Im just guessing,but the oil your using might not be lubing well enough.I'd chamfer the the inside and outside of the case mouth slightly and try lubing with Imperial Size Die Wax.

Are you lubing the inside of the neck? The best lube I've found is the imperial sizing wax as well.
