    I'm sold on Imperial Sizing Wax. Just keep a dab of ISW on your fingertips as you feed the brass into the press and you're all set.

    That "spray" step can be such drudgery.

    I have been using Hornady One Shotn i switched over to liquid lanolin & Red Heet mixed 10 to 1 in a clear plastic spray bottle. I put a line at 5 inches and another line 1/2 an inch higher.
    To apply i bought a tupperware style container from the dollar store. It is about 7 inches wide, about 12 inches long and about 3 inches high.
    I lay the brass in out, spray it, roll the brass arround, spray it again, roll it around again.
    Let it set, then I will wipe the neck & end of case and apply Imperial Apication Media withDry Neck Lube out of that small round container Redding sells to lube the inside of the case and resize.
    Liquid Lanolin and Heet is a lot cheaper then any of the factory spray lubs.

    I'm a fan of 1 tube of Lee lube to 91+% iso alcohol. Couple sprays in a freezer bag, roll some brass around, wait 5 minutes, start loading. Makes a big difference in carbide sizing dies and cheap.
