Anyone using this? I picked some up and was going to try.

How are you applying? Dipping bullet base in media, or neck of case (seems like too much is wasted on outside of neck that way)....

I have been using a qtip and wiping on inside of neck and seems to work, but a pain in the butt.

Imperial dry lube? Just dip the case mouth before bushing neck sizing and the bullet base before seating.

For bullet seating, it helps prevent cold-welding of the bullet to the brass.

Ur supposed to dip the case into the media. If you elect to dip bullets, you’re not going to see the same results because the graphite will get scraped off by the case mouth during seating.

Yes I meant the Imperial Dry Lube. Sorry didn't have it in front of me...

I've been using the Imperial Wax or whatever it's called wiped on the brass prior to sizing, and wiping the Imperial dry lube inside case necks with q-tip prior to seating bullet...

I only use it for bushing neck sizing. I did a test in which I dipped bullets and compared to non dipped bullets with the same components. There was no difference in either accuracy or SD/ES.

Yes, much cleaner & faster application than the wax. I mainly use it for neck sizing.

It’s really not meant to be used anywhere other than as a neck lube, and does a great job, in my experience. I do anneal, and get very acceptable neck concentricities and less grabbing of the nexk when pulling the sizing button back through neck. Highly recommend it’s use.
