    I was visiting my uncle at the mental hospital and told him I had some sticking problems doing chamber casts. He recommends I switch from Rem Oil to PAM. Comments, suggestions?

    I have heard of it but never tried it. It works wonders on fried eggs.

    I have never heard of it as being used for a release agent. But it is all I use for lubing my brass for resizing. It works great. Don't see whey it wouldn't work.

    Thanks! I'll try it and give a full report.

    resizing lube - if I wasn't so delighted with IMPERIAL SIZING DIE WAX I might try it.

    Not to hi-jack this thread, but precisionreloading.com sells it for $6 a tin (in British parlance) and they write

    Anyone that reloads should recognize this product. If you're not using Imperial Sizing Die Wax for your resizing lube . . . . you should be. I have recommended this product to hundreds of shooters, and out of all the shooters that have tried it, I have yet to hear from anyone that has ever switched back to another lube.

    Used the Brownell's stuff that came with the kit. Worked good.

    Used Pam spray (regular or butter) on the last 6. Worked just as good.

    BIG_BORE , as an aside, what do you use to make your chamber castings with?
