I sure hate sticking my neck out here and telling what I tried. I feel it coming already! But I did try it just to see. I've been using a black graphite powder for seating recently. Just stuff you get from the hardware. Been working great. Except, even with gloves, it's messy as hell. So last night while I am waiting for imperial wax to show up I had a thought. (these usually get me in trouble). I thought I would try seating bullets with case lube. So did a couple of empties just to see.They went in slick as hell. But taking the cartridge and leaning on it on my bench I was able to move it a few thousands. Wasn't an issue with the powder. Can I expect better results from Imperial wax?
