i ran out of sizing lube today, and was wondering if i could just coat the dies, (expander ball) with moly? would this work in place of the sizing lube?? or would this become problem-matic, and end up in a stuck case??

I don't know, and I wouldn't care to find out.
Moly has to be one of the messiest things around. It gets on your hands and clothes and is almost impossible to remove.
Anyway, I would be very surprised if you didn't end up with a stuck case because it probably doesn't have a high enough film strength.
In an emergency, I have used STP oil treatment as a sizing lube, but I've not tried it in about 30 years. As I recall, it did work pretty good.
Another product that works well is Anhydrous Lanolin from a druggiest.
It works very well! Even better them some sizing lubes I have used.
And an added benefit is, it keeps your hands really soft, and makes you smell like a wet sheep!
