Neck prep question

When you reload do you clean the inside of your necks and then dry lub? What do you do to your cases each time you reload them...........??

Re: Neck prep question

I like the carbon layer in my necks, as it provides for consistent seating forces and there is no downside to it.

When I get back from the range, I hand deprime cases, scrape the carbon out of pockets with a twist of a pocket tool, & wipe the neck outsides with a rag of 'carbon killer'.
The cases are dropped into a vibratory cleaner with a semi-coarse media & run for an hour.
Then I pour the cases into a media sieve and knock any granules out of flash holes with the handle of a small screwdriver.
Now they're ready for sizing/reloading.
