    GONRA sez STP Oil Treatment (auto parts shops) and Tri-Flow Synthetic Grease (bike shops)
    both are GREAT case forming and resizing lubes - suitable for the Most Demanding Applications.
    (Resizing Chicom 14.5mm Soviet LCS scrap dealer cases, etc.)
    3 oz. tube of Tri-Flow does 1200 .50 BMG Scrap Dealer cases....

    I had better results with their short cases when I made my 32-40 cases too. Without annealing, I was losing 10-15% to folds using Imperial wax, after I annealed the rest of the lot, I lost one that rolled under a heavy tool box. I shoot most of mine breech loaded in a schuetzen rifle and the annealed cases are much less trouble to use. Hardened cases had to be flared each time to effect a seal but annealed brass shoots clean every time.

    Timin' has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

    Annealing is the way for me. I started tonight after weight sorting 250 and coming up with around 140. I annealed all 140 and began sizing. After annealing the cases size down with no losses yet having done about 50 so far. I'm using the short cases but some trimming will be necessary.

I ordered 100 cases from them about 8 months ago. They weren't cheap but maybe another option if your case forming doesn't pan out.
    Thanks for the link.
