Don't have the slightest idea what it consists of, but after reading the directions (for the first time) I let the cases dry for about a minute and even though they felt dry to the touch, it worked perfectly without a trace of oil to be found on anything in the surrounding area. I may be hooked, no more wiping down the cases after sizing before I could proceed to the next step. Sometimes getting stuck in a rut prevents one from trying anything new, and missing out on a good product without even knowing it.

Yes it has been a good thread - I plan on ordering a can of Hornady Spray now. The Lyman stuff leaves a greasy residue that must be tumbled clean. Anything remaining on a case can't be good for the chamber!

One word of caution. If you are using something like a lube pad I would disassemble the dies and clean them good. then reassemble the die and then give a nice squirt of the case lube into the die.

I cleaned my die with gun scrubber once next case was stuck like chuck.
