    New RCBS lube-a-sizer 2 - YES!!!

    It is way easier than hand lubing and way less messy than pan lubing!
    Lubed about 50 soft low velocity rounds and about 100 hard GC high velocity rounds today with Ben's red.

    I don't think I pan lubed more than 100 cast bullets before I bought my LAM2. Worth every penny.
    It's only hubris if I'm wrong.

    I don't think I would go back to pan lubing, even if all the sizers were to disappear.
    I would use BLL and tumble. That's pretty fast and clean and will handle most calibers. But I'm not giving up my 8 lubesizers without a fight.

    Probably pan lubed a good 20000 rounds before got RCDs luber sizer for christmas . after using it I can't believe I went through all that. Anyone who would rather pan lube probably never used a luber sizer . used to say pan lubing works fine couldn't have been more wrong . absolutely fell in love
    with rcbs luber sizer. It is a great choice. Good luck and happy loading.

    I have a Lyman 45, a Lyman 4500 and a LAM2. The RCBS is my favorite of the three.

    Just because a handful of people on the Internet share an opinion doesn't prove it is correct.

    I love the lubesizer! It lubes boolits much better than I do by hand!

    Oh, it blows pan lubing away!!! I actually find it more relaxing than a chore. I really look forward to sitting down with a nice bucket of bullets and running them through the luber, usually while watching football on the tube.

    I've never used the RCBS lube sizer.It seems to be a good unit.I have a Lyman 45,three lyman 450's and a Lyman 4500.All set to lube size different diameter bullets and with different lubes.I certainly don't want to go back to pan lubing and sizing with a Lyman 310 tool.I could use another sizer for SPG lube though.

    Right now the RCBS units are out of stock most places or priced too high, $200> elsewhere.

    I remember my first time using a Lube sizer (which came shortly after I attempted to pan lube, which was a disaster), it was great fun, and I thought, HOW NEAT !

    I have the Saeco lube-sizer and have been very happy with it. Recently I've started in shooting BPC's and could use another sizer for the BP lube. WOW! have the prices gone up since I got mine. Thanks for posting about your RCBS units. Good to know you guys are happy with yours. Gp

    One of these days I will be in the market and grade to here about the current choices. My Lachmiller is getting down the line and repaired many time. Thanks for the update on the new stuff.

    Aren't lube sizer's sweet !
    That Lyman 450 was the best thing I ever bought .
    One cycle of the handle and a tweek on the lube supply and a perfectly sized , lubricated and gas check seated boolit pops out...ready for loading. No muss no fuss ! I agree ....YES !!!
