Sir: as the price of brass increases, the case forming losses are a costly thing to do; therfore, learn to anneal ( soften without temnpering ) before resizing, then anneal properly to re-harden . Loss rate= zero. Overbore

The Lee Sizing wax that is white and comes in a tube is heads and tails better than Imperial sizing wax. Trick is to apply the lee wax and let the wax set up a couple of minutes, just like you do a car wax. The lee wax is so good that I lubricated my bullet jackets with the wax before running them through the forming dies.

After using the Lee wax, you'll save your Imperial Wax and give it to someone that you don't like!
