Re: Neck sizing die question?

I've enjoyed my reloading more since I switched from Redding S type neck dies to the Lee collet neck dies. Runout has been reduced to practically nothing and I really like the fact I don't have to lube cases.

    I was told that using the titanium nitride made case lub unnecessary. Is this true?

    Question 2: How do you clean the inside of the case neck other than tumbling?

    TiNit = NO lube

    Steel = LUBE

    Case cleaning...how I do it: http://www.6mmbr.com/ultrasonic.html

    Used bronze brushes chucked in a drill work OK for just necks.

    Well, I always lubed regardless when using the Redding dies. Seemed to make things work better. However, concentricity was never satisfactory, so I switched to the Lee die sort of on a whim and have been a convert ever since.

    As far as case necks are concerned I just tumble and then run a nylon case neck brush in them a time or two.
