I just wondered if anyone else lubes their pistol rounds before resizing them. Dillon makes a lube that you spray very lightly on your brass before you resize the casing. I use it even though I have carbide dies. An 8 oz. bottle goes a long ways. I lay the rounds on a cookie sheet (pan) and give them a light coating and then I resize and deprime. With carbide dies it's not necessary however I have found that sometimes the die accepts the brass a little easier and the lube does nothing to harm the brass. After about a thousand rounds I then clean my dies and my cookie sheet, depending on how much walnut bits I have after tumbling. I do this with all my .45 loads.
