I use mica but I'm thinking soapstone might work better.If you used the round pencil type instead of powder you could lube the bottom of the neck were the expander first engages the neck.Great idea give it a try and let us know.

I use a nylon or bronze bore brush rolled lightly on a RCBS case lube pad.

No fuss, no muss, no bother.

Wouldn't you have to tumble again this way?

The soap stone may be abrasive, where the mica is a lube. Baby powder any one....

I use the Mica with the beads.

Wouldn't you have to tumble again this way? No, the bristle brush transfers a very small amount of lube inside the case neck. Just enough to prevent squeaky expanding.

Then the expander button pulls what ever small amount is there out when you size the case.

I've tried a few different methods and found Imperial's dry neck lube by far is the best. No need to look any further!

I've tried several ways, including one of those boxes with brushes and mica, and in practical terms, rc's brush rolled on a lube pad is simplest & works fine. It's KISS at its finest... :scrutiny:
