|Hi, this email is directed to Patty primarily,
but if you reload you may find it interesting and helpful.
So let me begin. You will find the information for this product on page 68 of the E. ARTHUR BROWN CO. catalog makers of the Model 97D Rifle. It is sometimes referred to as THE BUFFALO RIFLE. It is a single shot falling block rifle, comes in many calibers. My rifle is in 223 cal.
What I'm writing about is the Imperial Dry Neck Lube. If you go into the E. Arthur Brown web site (EABCO.com) you will find it and also a short video on how it can be used. In the video the gentleman is lubing his cases by hand using his fingers to apply the lube, then he sticks the case neck into the dry lube. This may be all well and good if you prefer lubing your cases this way. I think I came up with a easier and quicker way.
What I came up with was making three blocks out of wood (actually flooring which I get for free and I use these blocks for kinderling to start the wood stove). I have a template which I used for making reloading blocks from the same type of wood, oak, etc.
I made each block to accept the necks of the cases I'm reloading. Top block is for 223, middle block is for 6mm Rem. Bottom block is for 3006. I now can spray lube using (Dillon Spray Lube) all the cases in the block with out getting any lube on the necks. Each block holds sixty cases. Two passes with the spray lube and all the cases in that block are lubed. Now all I have to do is stick each case in the dry neck lube before I resize each case. The holes are drilled on a 3/4 inch grid template. The template is make of thin aluminum and each hole is about 1/8 inch, just large enough to use a pencil or marker to leave a mark on the wood for a drilling guide.
I made the holes with a drill press and gauged the holes according to the length and size of the neck sizes. Resting on the middle block is the dry lube, it should last a long, long time. Cost of the dry lube was $7.00 plus shipping.
I hope this helps with your reloading techniques.
