Could not find my regular lube at the store so bought some Hornady One Shot. Had 2 stuck .223 cases in a row! WTH! After punch, hammer, and copper tubing cutter....I read the instructions on the can. I did not wait the 1-2 minutes after spraying the cases for the lube to dry.

Reading is fundamental...DA!

I used One Shot for years and never had a stuck case, but I always went through the cases on the block smearing it out evenly around each case with my fingers. I switched to a lube wax that was a lot cleaner than One Shot.

no more problems other than the wife is wondering where the PAM cans are going?

Luigi,

Pams got to be cheaper than One Shot. Hows that working for you? Anything special we should know?

It is about 25% of the cost and works great!

Just kinda oily...have to run the cases thru the corn cob tumbler media againto soak up the oil.

I usually clean out the primer pockets after sizing so I normally tumble again prior to priming.

also smells a little better......

I'm loading .223, .308 and 30-06 on a Dillon 550. What I'm doing is full length resizing and loading in one pass around the tool then tossing the loaded cartridges in the tumbler for 15 minutes or so to get the lube off. I haven't had any problems. I'll give the Pam a try.

Thanks,
