    I am getting ready to size/deprime my first batch of .223. I have a brand new lube pad and purchased Lyman Case lube. I was told to hit the pad with a coat of lube before I actually used it then hit it again just proir to starting the batch. I coated the pad. I didn't realize how sticky this stuff was and am unsure of exactly how much lube I need on the cases before I started resizing them. Any suggestions, hints, tips would be greatly appreciated. I am using lee dies.

    A little lube goes a very long way. Just put a couple dabs on your pad then smear it out along the rest of the pad.

    Roll 5 or six cases across the pad at one time when you're lubing them.

    Don't let the lube build up on the shoulder or you'll get shoulder dents when sizing.

    You can also try th RCBS lube die for .223...works rather well.

    +1 If you do a lot of rifle rounds, that's the easiest, cleanest way. Even beats spraying them.
