Do any of you guys make your owen? [ Im not ]just wondering like if you run out and the shop is closed.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

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)
