Tim,I have loaded countless rounds, both oistol and rifle, using Crisco shortning. Never had a problem and it's not as messy as some commercial lubes.

Tim, Bryan beat me to this one but Imperial is the very best and easy to use. Just wipe a finger across it and roll the case in your fingers and that's it. My .223 cases I get six cases lubed for every swipe across the container. It's used by the best benchrest shooters too and there is no real cleanup. You can just lightly buff a handful at a time in a towel. Or do like me and drop a couple hundred or so in the tumbler with some corn cob media. First time I used Imperial I was amazed how well it worked with so little effort and no sticky mess.

Crisco Hmm learn some thing new every day. But hey I use the Hornady spray. Load up your loading block with your brass. Spray them over lightly angleing down (So the inside of neck is lubed)wait a minute or two. Then start sizeing,simple. :)

You'd like Imperial sizing die wax much better. It cleans up so easy, because you use just a touch. :P

Well John, you've given me great product advice so far.... my RCBS spray is nearing empty so I am going to give the Imperial sizing die wax a try.

There are three cans of it for one money on E-Bay that I am watching that ends in a couple days. If it goes for a reasonable price I'll try and pick them up.

Redding is marketing it now, and they put it in a can half its original size for the original price. :angry:I just went to Sinclair and see they are still selling it in the larger tin for the same price. ;) Here's the link.http://www.sinclairi...=IMP&type=store

Take a look at a couple other items on this page.http://www.sinclairi...PACT&type=storeThe AR link is a great item, and the cleaning rod bore guide is the best one made. You don't want to damage your expensive barrel, do you? ;)

You don't. I don't use any with my Redding dies and they work perfectly. In fact they tell you not to use any lube on neck size only cases either. B)
