Good stuff. Any concern about getting the case lube down into the case? I have never used a spray lube before. But i know what the standard RCBS case lube does when it comes in contact with powder

No. I've been using it since 2003. I don't know exactly how many cases I've sized in that time span, but 15,000 wouldn't be far off:)

Never had any problem.

Great video.
I've not cleaned the carbon out of the case neck but I'm going to give it a go and see how I fare.

Sam , have you tried SS wet tumbling ? I have spotless necks and primer pockets without bushing , reaming , or steel wool buffing. If you like clean brass I highly recommend SS tumbling.

While I don't doubt they work well, I'm going to stick with what I have. I don't care what the inside of the case looks like, I just want the outside clean.

Sam did you swap out the cutter on the Sinclair trimmer for the carbide one, or is it the stock one? Was wondering if the cost is worth the up grade.
