I know what you’re thinking: why would you use case lube on straight wall pistol brass?!? It doesn’t need it and you’re just making more work for yourself! To that I say, yes, you are correct. However, it makes a noticeable difference in the effort needed to resize the brass if you lube it first. Enough of a difference that I think it’s definitely worth the time to lube my cases after wet tumbling them. If this is too much work, you can always buy Hornady One-Shot Case Lubricant or Dillon Case Lubricant but this sure feels the same and is much cheaper this way.
