    Zbench replied to a thread lubing cases in Swaging
    Double +1 for RCBS Case Lube 2. I use it on all my brass when resizing. Main reason is it comes off really fast in the wash since it's water soluble. For swaging, I use straight castor oil. Much more slippery than swage lube, and easier to clean...

    Zbench replied to a thread Making lead wire in Swaging
    It's already squirting hot lead. If you squirt .185 wire it is hot enough to burn you coming out of the extrusion die. The more you extrude, the hotter it gets.

    I've had the pro edition for a year and I'm still learning...I do believe you can trick the program and do a flat base pin. It'll give you an error, but it'll still calculate.. I'll have to re check how I did it..d
