Try to use die wax from Redding. You only apply in a thin layer for the first 2 cases and thereafter you only apply on every 2nd case. See what works best.

I use a case lube pad from RCBS and the RCBS water soluble lube. Works great. Just dot the pad with lube, run your finger over it after you use it and next time you use it, it will be ready and perfect. Also dont over roll your cases, or put too much pressure on them. A light coating will do a great job.
