Thread: Graphite Powder to Lube Cases for Sizing

    Graphite Powder to Lube Cases for Sizing

    Ok, so it's easy & pretty clean to use graphite powder as a lube to neck size cases but does anyone use graphite powder for full length re-sizing?

    Is it a mucky operation?
    What's the method you use?
    Is there anyone out there who's actually tried it?
    Cheers.

    I've tried it. It seemed a good idea but in practice it clogged the die up enough for it to jam, perhaps I was too generous with the quantity used. Anyway I've now cleaned the die out and gone back to using lube.atb Tim

    Neck sizing, I just dip one case in six in the powder, the following cases don't need any powder at all. They just slide easily into the die & out. When I feel a gentle grip on the neck, I dip the next case in the powder again.
    Works just fine, but I haven't yet tried using it for F/L re-sizing & wondered what the crack is. Cheers.
