I did a search and didn't really find what I'm looking for so I'll ask the question. What case lube do you guys use when reloading bottle neck cartridges, i.e. rifle cartridges in a progressive press. Years ago when I shot highpower I used a Dillon rl550b but resorted to imperial sizing wax to lube my cases. This turned a progressive press into a "not so progressive" press as lubing and sizing became a separate step:confused: . Is there anything out there that you folks trust to be able to lube the cases and not contaminate the powder charge so I'm not lubing and sizing as a separte step. If lubes aren't available for this what process do you use to speed the cycle up. Sorry for the long post but thanks.

Hornady One-Shot Lube. I use it on 223 and my pistol reloads in both a Dillon 650 and 550 presses. Just put shells in gallon size zip-lock bag, spray for a couple of seconds, shake bag and spray again, shake than load.

The lube which Dillon sells is good too.

Dillon lube is my first choice, I use one shot if I have to.

+1 on the Dillon lube (it is simply lanolin in alcohol, you can make more when it is done). Nice light and easy to get off afterwards, and makes a WORLD of difference.

Dillon spray lube for rifle and a light dusting of hornady 1-shot for pistol cases (yes, even with carbide dies).
