    What is the best dry lube out there? Spolar suggests One Shot but it is hard to find locally. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks for the help.

    I like the Remington DriLube in aerosol cans. It's a little pricey, but a little goes a long way. Make sure you shake the can real good before you spray.

    "One Shot" is a lubricating wax. So is this stuff that Lowes sells.

    I use it on my P-W loaders. Bicycle shops usually sell similar products.

    There are TWO DIFFERENT Hornady Lubes, one for resizing (case lube) and one that is a dry lube.

    You want to make sure to get the right one. The one on the right is the dry lube and it is wonderful. The one on the left is a great metalic cartridge lube.

    At first glance there appears to be little difference between the 2:

    <I>MSDS, Hornady One-Shot Case Lube</i>

    <I>MSDS: Hornady Gun Cleaner and Dry Lube</I>

    Both are about 95% solvent, ±4% combination of two waxes and the rest is propellant. Might be some difference in the solvent but they are both basically lubricating waxes.

    The information on the lube in the cleaner/lubricant (<I>Dyna-Glide Advantage</I>) notes that it only lasts about 20-40 shots in a rifle or pistol before it has to be renewed.

    I'm satisfied with how long the Dupont stuff lasts. I'll stick with it.

    I've never used either for gun lube. I used the case lube when I was a rifle shooter (before Karen Dickman's dad said, "Why don't you try shooting trap). An evil man for sure.

    Anyway, the case lube is really good for lubing when you are neck sizing. Works for full length resizing in smaller rifle and all pistol cartridges, but is a little light for anything "06 and larger. Spritz your 9 MMs, or 45s with this and they absolutely glide into and out of all types of resizing dies even those that require no lube.

    The dry lube I got when I bought my Spolar, and it worked well. Then Creeker told me to try it on my primer tray and a couple of other places and it is really great.

    I use it on my Dillon primer tray, too. I've never had much of a problem with my SL900 not dropping primers, but this stuff makes a non-dropped primer a thing of the past IMO.

    Probably there are other products as good, maybe better, but I really like these two.

    I've used Dri Slide for years. I order it off of the net.

    It is the only lubricant I've ever used on the collet of my Mecs over the years.

    Collets? I lube my MEC "Super Sizer" with Sta-Lube Synthetic Caliper and Disc Brake Lube from Advance Auto Parts. I relube it about every 4000 hulls just because it seems like the thing to do and not because it gives any signs of needing it. (It's NOT a dry lube, but I think there are places where dry lubes don't work as well as grease.)<center>

    Primer tray and chute? Bostick "Top Cote" made for reducing friction on the tables of woodworking table saws, jointers, band saws etc. NO BUILD UP! A new coat removes the old stuff.<center>
