    I got a new RCBS Pro 2000. What do I use to clean the oil out of the powder measure and components? Was thinking about using rubbing alcohol.

    Rubbing alcohol is good.

    When you get done, rub it down with a dryer sheet to stop the static on the clean hopper.

    You can also give it a dusting of black lock graphite to slick things up.

    +1 . The best way to clean for sure.

    I like Tuf-Glide to lube. Use just a tiny bit, work it in, and let it dry at least overnight.
