    When you reload do you clean the inside of your necks and then dry lub? What do you do to your cases each time you reload them...........??

    I like the carbon layer in my necks, as it provides for consistent seating forces and there is no downside to it.

    When I get back from the range, I hand deprime cases, scrape the carbon out of pockets with a twist of a pocket tool, & wipe the neck outsides with a rag of 'carbon killer'.
    The cases are dropped into a vibratory cleaner with a semi-coarse media & run for an hour.
    Then I pour the cases into a media sieve and knock any granules out of flash holes with the handle of a small screwdriver.
    Now they're ready for sizing/reloading.
