    Quick and dirty way could be to place the prepped, non-primed brass in a bucket and liberally spray with One-Shot and toss it like a salad.

    Or, if you own a progressive or turret press, purchase a RCBS Lube Die.

    One at a time with your fingers and Imperial Sizing Die wax while you run them through your press.

    Stand them all up and spray them. Not really any better though.

    Place in a reloading tray-Shoot w/ One Shot as follows:

    Shake can of One Shot.
    Make sure red tube is inserted in can.
    Spray the can at a 45 degree angle-from 18 inches-lightly!
    Repeat from the opposite side of the reloading tray(s).

    This will do it, with less than one second-total spray time.

    I second the use of Imperial Sizing Wax. I've previously tried Hornady One Shot, Lee Lube (from the tube), and RCBS lube with a lube pad.

    I pick up a case with my left hand and lightly touch my right index and middle finger to the Imperial Wax. I then pull the case through my right fingers with a twisting motion. As I prepare to place the case in the shellholder for sizing, I wipe my right finger across the case neck, depositing just the smallest residue to aid the neck resizer to slide out easily. I've lubed over 1000 cases since switching and have made only a small dent in the wax--looks like it will last for some time!

    Hope this helps!

    #4 is good. then put the brass in a net(s) and wash in hot water/soap and dry afer sizing.

    Lay them all in a row on a cookie sheet lined with paper towels, spray with Dillon lube or you home made lube, via this web site http://www.frfrogspad.com/homemade.htm

    Put newspaper down first then the cookie sheet with cases, spray all the cases at once. Spray on an angle towards the necks, tip the sheet so the cases roll 180 degrees and repeat, wait for the alcohol to evaporate and your ready to size. After sizing run them in your tumbler with clean corncob to remove lube. Throw away paper towels and newspaper and clean up is done.

    I've used this method with the home made lube for over 3000 308s, 2000 223, and 1000 30-06 and nothing has stuck
