Is there any? I reload for 6 different rifle cartridges. I've been using Frankford Arsenals spray on case lube with good results, no stuck cases etc.
However, the stuff is hard to get off the cases. I can wash them with dish detergent and hot water, Simple Green, dishwasher detergent, etc
They still have a lubricant residue.
I was thinking that perhaps there is an EFFECTIVE water soluble case lube that is easily removed and easily applied, like spray bottles etc.
Anyone with knowledge?
Alternatively, how to remove the case lube without tumbling the cases again. (I tried that & wound up with tumbling media that had ALL my brass feeling
like it had lubricant on it.)

RCBS water soluble is an outstanding lube as I can small base size rifle cases with it.

It is too thick to spray on.

I put a few drops on a flannel patch, put cases and patch in my Thumler's Tumbler, and let roll. Works great.

Washes off great too.

No need at all to wash them.

Just tumble them for 30 minutes in your case polisher when you get them sized or loaded.

Takes everything off.

I use the Hornady one shot, and then wipe it off with a rag after I trim and chamfer the cases. I use the Lee trimers so I run it in the drill and use the towell and it works great. I know that there are many who do not like the Hornady but I love it.

30+ years using Lee tube lube and a pad, never seen a need to change.

Another vote for Hornady one shot. Works great. On the other hand, I am using Lee Collet dies wherever I can. No lube needed. Reloads in .223 bolt actions and single shots are more accurate than full length sizing and your brass will last longer too. I have not had as good of luck with .22-250 and up since it is hard to close the bolt without full length sizing. And of course, semi-autos don't do well with neck sizing.

Grab your cheese grater and a bar of Ivory soap. Grate about a third of the bar, add a cup of water, microwave for one minute. I t will cool to a gell that will become a semisolid in a day or two. I keep mine in an old waterless handcleaner tub. Lasts for ages, if it gets little dry add a little water. Lubes cases, cleans them, wipes away completey with a damp cloth, costs nearly nothing, non -toxic.

I used Lee for many years, and although it will quickly make your brass ugly if you don't tumble because it is water based, it is a good lube. But I would venture to guess any water soluable lube will work just as well.
