Re: Newb question: No case lube on seating bullets

You shouldn't be having any problems seating your bullets without lube. If you are, something is not right. You DO NOT want case lube inside your neck during powder charging or bullet seating... not good for powder. As mentioned, use a deburring/champfering tool. You dont have to use it everytime if you dont trim, but you should use the first time and everytime you do trim. If you want consistant precision loads, you should probably be trimming after each firing.

Good shooting,

Mark

    SLC,

    Here's another thing to chomp on.

    When preparing the cases for resizing, do not lube the inside of the neck. Chuck up a proper caliber nylon/brass brush in your drill and run it back an and forth a couple of times. It will smooth up the operation.

    This operation would be after triming to length and chamfering with the new nifty tool you're gonna get.

    If you wish to lube the out side of the neck which will also lube the inside is take a small dixie cup sized thinger, put a couple of inches of #7 1/2 or 8 shot in it and mix in a some graphite powder. Mix it up and twist the case neck in it.

    It works, I use it, but some are a bit nervous about the graphite being kind of dirty. Got the process from an accepted authoritative rifle smith on here.
