Am I the only one?

It is just an old habit, but I still use a little Imperial wax on my pistol cases when sizing on carbide dies. Am I the only one?

I'm sure your not the only one, and you probably have a good reason other than it being "just a habit".

I'm new to this so I'm looking at the quickest, easiest way to load rounds by the 1k. So the carbide dies will just have to work fine without me applying ISW to each individual case by hand. :o

I find it makes my 9mms much more pleasant to resize.

I use rcbs carbide dies and I use some lee case lub on my 357/38s so I guess your not the only one.

I spray lube some pistol cases that go through carbide dies, just to make the sizing easier. Those would be 10mm, 357 Sig and .45 acp. I just tumble them in untreated corncob for about 20 minutes or so to take off the lube. It's much easier on my old arm that way.

Hope this helps.

Same here.
A light spritz of One-Shot on a bowl full of brass. then swirl them around until at least some of them have a little on them.

Even with carbide dies, a touch of lube on a few as 1 in 5 or 10 will make sizing go much easier & faster.

I lube about every tenth case,give or take.I do them ahead of time,stand them by the press,and grab one 'as needed'.

All carbide dies here for pistol, but a squirt of one-shot in the tub of brass makes the arm happy.
