    Had a friend using my press and after sizing, he loaded his ammo before cleaning out the lube. Pull 'em or use them? There would have been lube (Lee tube stuff) inside the necks. I'm really not sure what to tell him about it.

    If they're just plinking ammo, I would shoot them. It's not going to hurt anything (except 'maybe' accuracy).

    If a bottle neck like 243 win, the expander has pulled out most all of the lube on sizing. I vote for "use them"

    I have actually done that, using the Lee dry Lube in fact. The only thing I would recommend is don't let them sit around for an extended period of time, or the lube will clump the powder up. So shoot em, and you'll be good to go.

    I would use them. I don't think there is anything to worry about. All I usually do is use a Q tip anyway during trimming.
