Re: Brass getting stuck in reloading dies
On new dies I always take the dies apart and clean with some gun scrubber and rubbing alcohol. After I make sure they are dry on the inside I take a q-tip and spray some Hornady One-Shot on it and lightly swirl it around the inside of the die body. Then I re-assemble. I clean them like that once a year afterwards. Grit, hair, lube and God-knows-what builds up in them over time and they need to be cleaned. Lube and gunk will build up in the vent hole too.
I use One-Shot exclusively and like has been said already shake it well, spray on and give a minute or two to dry. It flows around the brass and leaves a slick coating behind that is much slicker than when the spray is still wet.
Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.
