Pulling the stick without lube?

I had a bottle of One shot sitting on the shelf for 6 months and never used it because I have carbide dies. I had know idea what I was missing. Anyone else never use the lube?

Once you've used HOS for pistol brass, you'll never go back to not doing so again.

I have an unused can of HOS that I must have bought around 2 years ago. We had some left-over Lansinoh, and I've been using that for pistol brass lube. A little goes a long long way...so I probably have a many years supply. I guess I could try the HOS...it might be easier to apply...but probably a lot more expensive.

A $7 can lasted me over 30K rounds.... a little goes a long way. I place my brass on a old baking cookie sheet, quick and light sweep spray, roll a little, one minute dry, then load the case feeder.

No reason to use lubricant with carbide dies and straight wall rounds.

None other than a personal preference for easier and more consistent sizing, less fatigue on the operator and a smoother running press. Like, I said earlier...

It isn't necessary, but in my experience (9mm, 44mag), it does make the press run quite a lot smoother.

I run a couple lubed cases every 10 when using carbide. Speeds and smooths things up.

We don't need lots of things but some of those things we don't need sure are nice.

I was hoping that this thread was about loading lead bullets that don't have lube on them. I have had a few from MBC and have been wondering if I should load them naked or color in the lube groove with some blue crayola.

I figured that would be the case. Thanks Steve.

I quickly found with .45ACP that lube helped a LOT!! I used the same lube with my 9mm... not enough difference for me to worry about ??

The lube I use is Steve's formula of the Lee lube (paste) mixed with alcohol. It takes some time to "mash" the paste so it mixes in with the liquid, but it dries with no residue. Worked wonders for my .45, used it once with 9mm and now I don't even bother. My 9mm resizes pretty much like butter as it is.

Luber for life. It's nice to know I don't need it if I'm out. It makes me relax physically when loading and I loaded a few hundred rounds without my back getting all twisted up now. Before after 100 or so if I exhaled deep my whole upper back would crack and feel like hell.

You don't need electricity or indoor plumbing either, but they sure make life easier.

And you consider that an accomplishment? It simply proves that now there are two things you can't load without unintended consequences.





















































CONGRATULATIONS!

Unintended consequences are how most of the greatest things in the world came to be.
Gunpowder for one. It was discovered in the 9th century while searching for immortality.










































Thanks Jack! I think I will name her Liberty. It has a nice ring to it.

Heya hi

Still alive, just been out of the game for a long time. I moved to Florida last year, and just now got my press set up again... haven't been shooting since last August either, but hopefully the "coming soon" indoor range will be opening within a few weeks. If I don't get some range time soon, you'll probably see a few new articles featuring drywall penetration tests recorded in my living room.

Oh! Bullet lube: I use the lanolin/99% alcohol mix. I think it's a 1:5 ratio, but it's out there on the internet somewhere. Just a quick misting, then tumble the finished rounds about 5-10 mins to clean the lube off.

(Cue the sound of someone shouting a warning about tumbling live rounds)

I've also tried Mobil-One... or maybe it was non-chlorinated brake cleaner. Not sure. But neither seemed to work too well. Neither does that "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" pump spray.
