    Default Homemade Case Lube

    I've seen a few of these threads so I decided to turn it into a step by step pictorial.
    Moderators delete if you see fit.

    Step One
    Throw "One Shot" in the garbage because evdentially it sucks...


    Step Two
    Gather contents -
    Liquid Lanolin (100% pure was $7.00 at the local health food store)
    Isopropyl Alcohol (at minimum 91% $1.19 at the local drug store - 99% is best couldn't find it)
    New or Clean spray bottle (from the "Dollar" store) has ratio markings and ounce markings so it helps


    Step Three
    Warm the Lanolin in warm tap water (110 to 120 degrees F - NO OPEN FLAMES)
    Do the same for the IPA, this will help in the mixing process.


    Step Four
    Pour 2 (two) ounces of the warmed Lanolin into the spray bottle


    Step Five
    Pour 16 (sixteen) ounces of the warmed IPA into the spray bottle giving you an 1:8 ratio
    This seem to be the ratio that best mimics Dillon Spray Lube


    Step Six
    Shake until contents becomes homogonized and label the bottle accordingly (so you don't confuse it with CLP or something)


    then proceed to lube cases as needed. I left some room incase I needed to adjust the ratio depending on the dies and how finiky they may be. Seems to work fine. I did about 30 once fired LC headstamps and it was smooth as silk.

    Hope it helps

    I am working on the same thing, I just need to find the lanolin and hopefully I'll be able to track down some 99% alcohol. Great post!

    Lanolin The Vitamin Shoppe about $7.00
    99% IPA from Gateway or Grainger (i was too cheap to pay 4.95 for shipping on a 3 bottle of IPA)

    I think there is a "The Vitamin Shoppe" about 5 minutes away, I"ll have to check it out this week. I'll also have to make a trip down to Grainger. The Dillon case lube is too expensive.

    question from the new re loader. I did my first 200 rounds of 40 S&W yesterday. they came out great and shot very well. I am reading about case lube. Do I need to lube pistol brass? And how do you lube it? Don't you need to keep it out of the inside of the cases? Do you clean the brass after you are done reloading? Never done it, never saw it done. I see you guys talking about spraying it on and wondering if it doesn't affect the powder. Can you educate me here?
