Thanks for the help.
If you lube most/all of your 30 carbine cases and use carbide dies, it will be much smoother and you will work (strech) your cases less, thus increasing case life. 30 carbine brass isn't cheap. A quick way to lube is Dillon/Frankford Arsenal spray lube. There's other companies too, it's just 99% isoprophyl alcohol and lanolin oil. You can find recipes to make it yourself. Anyway dump a bunch of cases into a box, give the box of brass a couple sprays, wait 5 mins, and load. Tumble in dry corn cob when done to remove the lube.
