    Dillon case lube ??

    Any harm to very light spray 9 mm cases before resize them threw my carbide die.
    I seem to get a few cases can be a ***** to resize.
    I broke my decaping pin yesterday
    I stop by the LGS was looking for One Shot lube
    All they had was Dillon case lube

    None at all.

    Carbide dies do not REQUIRE lube. NOTHING AT ALL wrong with lubing anyway.

    Watch for berdan cases... they are hell on decapping pins.

    Dillon lube works great. I use it on 9mm and 30 Carbine cases sized in carbide dies. I clean the lube off after sizing or loading with 15 - 20 minutes tumbling in sawdust.

    Not at all and actually is a good idea.
    "They" all say you don't need lube with carbide but you know what.....it makes sizing a LOT easier.
    It's also easier on the die....I been doing it for 40 years....ever since I pulled a carbide ring out of a set of Lyman AA dies.....lubing makes the cases not only go in easier but come out easier .
