So I’ve reloaded several hundred rounds of .45ACP with once used brass that I cleaned. Results were fine. Today I started more with some new brass that I purchased. I noticed instantly that I was having a bit of trouble with the case sticking to the dye on the second stage. Got to the point after about 5 rounds that I had to use some force to dislodge it.
I had not lubed any brass previously as I’d read that wasn’t really necessary for handgun calibers. But I’m thinking that may be wrong and if it is wrong I’m surprised that used brass would be ok but new brass would have an issue.
Do you guys lube all your brass?
Am I correct in assuming this is only a lube issue or is there something else I’m missing?
Thanks for your (KIND) help.
