Cool. I look forward to watching this.
SNAP!!
Doesn't matter HOW much I think I know there are ALWAYS useful elements that either I do not or that I have otherwise forgotten that I knew that can yet be useful to my reloading expertise....
Every day is a learning experience.

ATB ..... and shoot safely

Good start to the series. In football or as you say elsewhere, futbol, we tell the kids to remember the basics.

Is it OK to use a dry lube like Imperial to lube the inside of the case necks prior to full length resizing? I have always used a brush and resizing lube to do that, but since watching Boz lube the inside of case necks with the dry lube, wanted to ask the question. No way really to wipe off the inside of the case neck once the wet lube is brushed in.
Thanks, Steve

I am sorry. Meant to say "Broz", not "Boz".

I only use dry lube prior to loading powder charge then setting the bullet. I never personally lubed the inside of a case neck to size, didn’t see a reason to. I also tumble before and after sizing therefore I do not have sizing lube on the brass.

On once fired brass I prefer to just brush the inside of the neck. I have stopped cleaning brass with any method that cleans the carbon from inside the case.

What methods are you using to clean your brass? I have been wet tumbling my brass in stainless pins and there 0 carbon left over by the time they are out and dry.

How are you determining when cleaning is needed? Are you looking for excessive carbon buildup? How many firings are you getting on average before a cleaning is necessary?

Just looking at the case. I never clean base on what the inside of the case looks like. Using tumbling media will not remove much if any internal carbon.

Agreed. I keep an eye on the outside of the case neck. When it starts to look dirty, I clean. Several hours in the tumbler with rice and one shot. Just finished a couple hundred yesterday. They look better than brand new.
