Re: What usefull info can I get from factory loads

I don't mean to hi-jack this thread but I'd thought that I had read some where to lightly lube the inside of the case neck prior to seating the bullet?

I've done so on the last 150 rounds.

What are the pro's and con's of lubing or not (inside the case neck)?

Thanks

It depends on what lube you use. My understanding is that some lubes will harden and not stay the same over time. I think the dry lubes do not have this problem. I have never lubed my necks prior to seating, I know that Froggy does it Froggy Part II -- Reloading and I'd never argue with his results.

What lube are you using?

I'm using just some RCBS Case Lube-2.

What are the reasons that this may help or hurt accuracy?
