Getting some .223 ready for next weekend and got to thinking...

How many folks lube the inside of their case necks when sizing?

I always have. (Only been reloading about 5 years)

I got to wondering if this was another one of those Crimp / Don't Crimp arguments.

I like the Hornady Unique Case Lube. I use a Q-Tip and swab/swirl the inside of the neck.

Have FL sized thousands upon thousands of pieces of rifle brass and have never once lubed the inside of the neck. I use the same case lube as you by the way.

If it would make you feel better, and if you have a bench grinder, you can polish the expander ball. Cotton buffing wheel and some polishing compound. It'll make the steel shine like chrome. Slick as a VS model's azz.

I also use a Q-tip, but only lube about every third or fourth case to keep the expander ball lubed just a little. If it gets too dry or dirty, it will stretch the neck and shoulder upon exit.

I do have a bench mounted cotton buffing wheel & compound.
Got it a couple of weeks ago to bring an RCBS Uniflow Measurer with both metering barrels back to life that was given to me.
Everything had patina :-(
Cotton wheel did wonders.

Thank you for the great suggestion!!!

Always lube the inside of the case mouths, tried it years ago with the 7mm-08 and got one more loading before trimming than without the lube, so figure it lessens case trimming and extends case life with less stretching. YMMV

Okay... I polished it up.

Would you mind swinging by with a VS Model or two so I can do a proper comparison?

I use a lanolin alcohol spray that I mix up. I spray from two angles and some gets in the case mouths.

I prefer if I have the time to use the lanolin spray and let them dry. But if I'm in the middle of a run and the cases start to "drag" over the ball I have some locksmiths graphite on hand. Dip the case mouth in that and it's like...you get the idea.
