    I tried the Imperial graphite, man that shit is messy!! Now use Imperial wax with a Q tip. Just a tiny bit on inside of neck. Bullets seat like butta! No issue with the powder at all. Now, that pencil thing sounds interesting!

    We're talking seating bullets with sizing wax now? How the heck is Redding dry lube messy? Ugh, olive oil and forget about it

    Dang if that doesn't look like something I don't need, which means I want one. Midway, Sinclair, or somewhere else? ;)

    I've never even thought about this but-----would this reduce friction
    between the bullet and case neck ?

    Would a reduction in this friction possibly reduce bullet deformation
    and reduce longitudinal stress on the case ?

    Not all dry lube is messy black stuff. Might not improve anything
    but I don't see any harm in this. Worth a try ?
