    So I have been reloading for 4 years, first bout with 6.5 creedmoor. I am getting a dent at the shoulder right below the neck after 1st reload when resizing. This is happpening with both 1 shot lapua and Hornady. I have tried changing the die seating depth etc. not sure if it is a faulty die or what. Any ideas much appreciated. 0.jpg

    Too much case lube.

    Clean the die out, and lube it the exact same way you have been. Then, before sizing the case, wipe off the shoulder/neck portion with a paper towel. Now run it up in the sizer. It should come out looking as you'd expect.

    Too much sizing lube. What brand of dies? I experienced same thing with set of Forester 22BR dies.

    Liquids don't compress.

    Lube cant compress. Clean it out. If theres a vent hole make sure its clear. Only lube the body of the case- from your dent down

    As others have said, clean the inside of your die, then use very little lube on the case before sizing it. Main cause is too much lube on the case, especially around the neck/shoulder.

    Strange that it is happening with One Shot. It has a light film only.

    Yep

    Clean the die. Try imperial sizing wax. Lube should only be on the case body not the shoulder or neck. lube the neck with imperial dry neck lube.

    That is why I do not spray them individually. Put them in a zip lock, spray, rattle and roll, let set for a few and resize. Easy and no problems.

    Wording can be confusing at times. He didn’t really say that he was using One Shot for lube. He was saying once fired Lapua and Hornady brass.

    I've been using Hornaday's Unique. It's lanolin and really helps the chapped and cut/damaged finger tips as you rub it on the case. As an added bonus, wive's have been known to be particularly appreciative of soft hands. :cool:

    Got one of those round cookie cans from wally world at Christmas. 4 inchs deep or so. 100 cases of 223, two sprays of my etoh (alcohol) and lanolin mix and a shake. Wipe each shoulder before I size.
