    should these cartridges be safe to shoot? i had about 150 i pulled out in sorting that had these same "dings" in them, about 10 made it through the whole process and i pulled them out while doing final inspection

    i'd really love to reload the other brass if i can (i leaned on the side of safe than sorry :o)

    It's fine. Most of dings are cause when the fired case hits the deflector. Case gauge your ammo and if it goes in and out the case smooth, shoot it.

    I use the lee stuff, works great, mix is with some rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, mist it on and let it dry for a minute before sizing. :big grin:

    OneShot rules supreme as far as case lube goes IMO.



    You are loading 5.7? I hear that's some scary stuff.

    the only read "downside" to the 5.7 are there are no case gauges for it, you have to use your barrel :ugh:

    Hit up walmart and get a spray bottle and some 91% rubbing alcohol. Mix 1/4 to 1/2 the tube of lube with the alcohol, mist it on the cases and give it a minute to dry. Works like magic.

    That's basicly what the dillon lube is lanolin and alcohol. I like one shot for pistol cases and dillon for rifle cases.

    Do you have to wipe off dillon lube or just leave it on like one shot?

    I tumble my loaded ammo for 20 minutes to remove any lube. This also makes sure I don't have any loose primer pockets. If I did it would shake the primer out and then that round gets pulled in my final QC check. After the tumbling I spray a bar towel with a small amount of plexus and roll the loaded ammo around in it like they were french frys. This removes any dust and makes the ammo really slick but does not attract dirt. Lastly I case guage the ammo and check for any problems with the primers (ex high primers). All loaded ammo goes into ammo boxes and is labeled.

    The above is for pistol or rifle FMJ's. If I load any kind of hollow points or molly bullets I wipe down the cases with a shop rag sprayed with a small amount of brake cleaner.
