    I've used Lyman "Heavy Duty" in the old metal toothpaste tube, Lyman in the plastic tube, RCBS in the plastic tube and the "new" RCBS Lube 2 in the plastis bottle. Also the Imperial Case Sizing Lube. All will work if you use them correctly but because it is easier to get just the right amount and easier to clean off the Imperial is the best IMHO of all of them. After that Lyman or RCBS is pretty much the same. The Lyman "Heavy Duty" was a grease rather than a liquid like the other Lyman and both RCBS offerings.

    I've also gone all expensive and purchased the Redding free floting carbide sizing ball "add on" to try in my .270 Winchester loadings. It has done away with the need, in the short time I have tried it out, as far as I can judge for using that proprietory grey colour dry powder on the case necks.

    So I'd also advise the Imperial Case Lube.

    I use lyman spray lube now,its easier to wipe off, I dont spray the cases. Only the foam in the tray and roll them, its a bit pricey but it goes a fare way,

    Hornady One Shot, aerosol spray on. I took some convincing but found it is easy to use, no mess, dries quickly, good stuff. For example, you can lube 100 cases just as quickly as you can give the tray three or four turns and spray them from different angles including above to lubricate inside the neck.
    A pessimist is an optimist with experience.

    Hornady Unique is good stuff & a tub lasts ages. Simliar I believe to Imperial..?
