All,

I've been using an RCBS lube pad for over 15 years. On the advice of many folks I order a can of Redding Imperial Wax from Graf and Sons. It arrived today, and... well.... I am stumped. How do I apply it to my cases?

Thanks in advance, Shannon

I put a dab on my index finger (not much) and rub it on the case turned by my other hand.
It takes very little to lube the case. I also put a small amount on a q-tip and lube
inside the case at the neck shoulder junction. This will prevent the expander from
pulling the shoulder forward as the shoulder is not supported.
This goes faster than you think. A tin of die wax will probably be around for your kids to
use.
Good luck!

Hawkins,

Thanks for the advice. I'll give it a try. Does it build up in the sizer die? Do I need to apply it to the entire case?

Best Regards, Shannon

You use so very little of the die wax it can't build up. You will find how thin it coats.
You lube the entire case, toward the base it's important.
Good Luck!

I've found the stuff great for working brass into new calibers, but for just resizing, the regular case lubes are alot easier and slightly less messy. Regards, guns
