    I did a search and didn't really find what I'm looking for so I'll ask the question. What case lube do you guys use when reloading bottle neck cartridges, i.e. rifle cartridges in a progressive press. Years ago when I shot highpower I used a Dillon rl550b but resorted to imperial sizing wax to lube my cases. This turned a progressive press into a "not so progressive" press as lubing and sizing became a separate step:confused: . Is there anything out there that you folks trust to be able to lube the cases and not contaminate the powder charge so I'm not lubing and sizing as a separte step. If lubes aren't available for this what process do you use to speed the cycle up. Sorry for the long post but thanks.

    One Shot does the trick

    Hornady One-Shot Lube. I use it on 223 and my pistol reloads in both a Dillon 650 and 550 presses. Just put shells in gallon size zip-lock bag, spray for a couple of seconds, shake bag and spray again, shake than load.

    The lube which Dillon sells is good too.

    Dillon lube is my first choice, I use one shot if I have to.

    +1 on the Dillon lube (it is simply lanolin in alcohol, you can make more when it is done). Nice light and easy to get off afterwards, and makes a WORLD of difference.

    Dillon spray lube for rifle and a light dusting of hornady 1-shot for pistol cases (yes, even with carbide dies).
