I just started loading .223 Remington in the last couple weeks. I'm using the RCBS case lube that came with my press. I am having a problem with my powder collecting in the neck of the case due to the stickiness of the residual case lube. I suppose it isn't a lot of powder, perhaps only a few tenths of a grain, but I'm a Virgo and little things like that annoy the piss out of me. This weekend I tried washing the cases with mineral spirits after sizing them and it didn't seem to remove any of the lube. Next I tried spraying them down with some brake cleaner and had a little better results but still had powder sticking to the neck. Next up was swabbing the necks out with a Cutip to try and remove the lube. That helped some, but still had powder sticking. Not even mentioning the added pain in the ass step of swabbing them out. Am I being overly anal about making sure all the powder drops into the bottom of the case? Is there another way of removing the lube from the case neck before dropping the powder?
