Hornady One-Shot Case Lube
By Michael G.

I have not tried other spray lube brands and they could work just as effectively. I have used the Hornady brand for years and as advertised, it will not contaminate primers I use long styro trays that meat comes packaged on, laying the cases flat in the tray bottoms, spray the cases, let the lube dry for about 5 minutes, then pick up handfulls of cases and let them drop back into the trays, flatten them all, then spray again. After this second drying, I resize them. Occasionally I can feel a rifle case is getting overly tight so I stop, back the case out of the die, and with a little dab of sizing wax I keep handy, rub a little on the case, and then resize it. I don't blame this on the One-Shot lube since my technique doesn't give a 360 degree coverage to each case. After resizing, I put the cases into a tumbler to remove the lube and give a little extra shine to the cases. I keep extra cans in my inventory.

Definitely an interesting product. It works very well. I typically use lanolin and alcohol or coconut oil and alcohol, but this one shot works very well for Case lube. I bought it out of curiosity after reading about the product online. I don't know that I will buy another can of it as the coconut oil and alcohol seems to work better than anything else I have tried. That being said the one shot is definitely worth the money just to satisfy curiosity. Graf and sons had the best price that I could find for it.

I have used this stuff exclusively for the past 15 years at least. I do not follow their instructions, so take all this with that in mind. Normally what I do is put the cases I am going to size in a ziplock bag, and spray the lube over them. I then seal the bag and knead the cases around to make sure the are all coated. I open the bag and let them dry for a few minutes. I also give the inside of the die a quick spray while they are drying. I may be a total idiot, but it has worked for me for a long time. I get no stuck cases, and I get no wrinkles in the sized cases. Your mileage may vary.

I actually purchased this by accident (that can be called not reading) since I was thinking that I was ordering the Hornady one-shot gun cleaner rather than Hornady Case Lube. Since I had it I decided to give it a ‘shot’ and am glad that I did.
It will help if you have a reloading block that will allow the cases to stand with the mouth up. I am sure that you could line them up on a bench, but you will want some scrap paper or cardboard for them to stand on since there will be spray that will reach the surface. The directions call for spraying at a 45 degree angle from both sides and this only takes a few seconds. After a few minutes the cases are ready. The directions call for cleaning the inside of your sizing die followed by a spray of Case Lube inside. I didn’t do this for the first 25 cases to see if there would be any difference and the difference was ‘slight’. That being said, when I tried it with a different caliber I started with a clean Case Lubed die. The first cases were .222 Rem Mag which are relatively easy to resize, but I wanted a better test so I got out some old .308 military that I believe were fired from an automatic. In the past these have required extra care so that they would not stick and also slide freely into the sizing die. I resized 20 of the .308 cases without any problems. After resizing the cases will need to be wiped off with a soft cloth – in my case an old dishtowel that my wife no longer used. Spray that is left inside the case is said to not affect the powder or primers. Since I am somewhat particular about my reloads, I did take a Q-tip and quickly wipe the inside of the neck. This is another time were the reloading block was a help, but it could have been done as quickly while wiping the outside of the case. I was completely satisfied with the Case Lube and will be using it as I continue reloading.

I highly recommend the one shot due to its simplicity. No more oily pads that u can only lube small amounts at a time. With the one shot you can do 1 or multiple case. Great product.

I have used this for a few year's. It's easy to use and I have had no stuck cases. And it is fairly easy to wipe off after reloading.

All it takes is a quick spray and your ready to resize brass, I see no reason to use anything else.
