How often are you supposed to change your oil?

Another vote for Imperial Sizing Wax. It is more expensive than a tube of Lee lube but it lasts about 50 times as long and no build up or dented shoulders.

My case lube style is use both the RCBS lube pad for the out side and Hornady "One Shot"spray for inside and out side of case necks. Then dump them in a brass Tumbler/vibrator for a few hours.

Good to know I was right to think this idea a bit.....How should I say..."off."
I googled "case lube" to see if there were any recipe's for a lanolin mix and came across that site.
