    Inside neck lubing with MOLY

    Hi guys would like to ask how to prepare the Moly or which Moly type is used to Lube inside case neck ?
    The method im after is the one ive seen in video by Lou Murdica in which he dips a brush in a solution, not sure if dry or wet and proceeds to Lube inside case neck , if wet would like to ask how to prepare and which solvent is used to do this ?

    Thanks to amo reply in Advance,

    Cheers Remy

    I suggest this instead of Moly. Powdered graphite, in a container with a lot of plastic balls, just dip the neck in it.

    50/50 Moly/Dry Mica Neck Lube

    I use a 50/50 mixture of Moly and Dry Mica to lube necks for LR BR bullet seating. I put the mixture in a shot glass to the depth of the case case neck.......no need for steel balls.

    I merely sink the case neck into the mixture give it a twist, and click the case on sides of the shot glass while retracting it, and then wipe off the outside of the neck. A fine film of the moly/Mica is left on the neck interior.

    I found that this technique significantly reduces the seating force variance on a a K&M force pack......especially after cleaning with pins.

    I don't recall why or how I came up with the 50/50 mixture......that was nearly 20 years ago.

    Been doing this for years.
    Bunch of fine lead shot with graphite all over it.
    Works good for turning and sizing.

    I would not anticipate using it to lubricate the inside of the neck for shooting.
    For the most part you need a decent amount of neck tension to get good powder burn.

    it all depends.
    if the bullet is at or in the ands less actual mechanical neck tension is required. a slow burning powder in a case limited by mag length MAY benefit from a bunch of tension.
    best to try various amounts in each case.

    and yes it is being used on loaded ammo.

    Molyslide

    I use Neco Molyslide 800-451-3550 I use a Q tip and a toothbrush and nylon brush Stu Harvey showed me this one. Chuck up a case. . USE THIS stuff very very sparingly. As case spins run brush dabbed in molyslide in the neck. Run toothbrush over neck. Turn. Clean up with. A tiny tiny bit goes a long way. Hope this helps. Michael Taner
