Re: Cleaning Lube on Resized Brass

I dump the sized cases with lube on them in a terry cloth tube (made with bath towels) I've sprinkled laquer thinner around on its inside. Then shush the cases back and forth which cleans them very well. Then they're dumped out to dry on the inside overnight so there's no contaminant in them to ruin the powder or primer.

I lube with Imperial sizing wax. Work great and wipes right off with an old hand towel.

I just use a towel with a little bit of rubbing alcohol on an area of the cloth. Gets them nice and clean.

Re: Cleaning Lube on Resized Brass

I too use "one stuck" (nice Broz!) and I just give the sized cases a rub with an old t-shirt. I stuck a case once with this stuff, and learned my lesson - every 8 or 10 cases I'll hit one directly with a little extra spray and it seems to keep everything moving along. Haven't stuck one since . . .

Despite all thye bad press on 'one stuck', I use it too. Instead of hitting a case ocassionally, I spray a shot into the die itself ocassionally, after douching the die out with brake cleaner.....

Can't say that I've ever stuck one unless I get over zealous. You can feel it if it begins to sieze in the die after all....

For my taste, the case lube pad leaves the cases too greasy......

I take about 10-15 cases in a plastic zip lock bag, spray in some one shot and make bread for a minute, remove and let dry.
