Ok I've had a couple stuck cases the last one broke my decapper , I'm lubing the crap out of them but still get a stuck case everyone in a while . Why?
I would have to question the type of lube you are using or the amount.I lube the inside and outside of every other case with a very slight amount. If I do more than that I will see dents in the cases. If you are lubing the crap out of them and not seeing dents you have way better luck than I.Ok I've had a couple stuck cases the last one broke my decapper , I'm lubing the crap out of them but still get a stuck case everyone in a while .

too much lube works like a wedge. just enough lubricates, too much squeezes the case and acts like you just clamped it in a vise. most lubricants dont compress.why does too much lube cause stuck cases ? That is if you start out with a clean die and one that's not all gummed up with dried lube already .lll also try backing off my dec pen too also how do y'all clean your dies ?
Well that's two votes for imperial . I went to my LGS yesterday ad all they had was RCBS spray I bought it but I didn't like it and neither did my press . I went back to my Lee lubemsup752 said:I broke 2 dies while forming .223 into 300 blackout. I switched to the imperial wax and apply just a tiny amount to the case and inside neck and have yet to break a third.
