I've never had good luck with it. EVERY time I use it I get stuck cases.......I always go back to the Lee paste type lube....never any issues.

I have been using OneShot exclusively for nearly 20years with no problems.

Time for my video again.

I had the same issue sticking cases with one shot, and went to wax. No more stuck cases.

The lanolin based spray lube seems to work well if you want to stick with spray.

You have to shake it really really really well. And stop and give it a few shakes every third seconds or so.

I am just using a standard RCBS FL sizing die. The cases come out as straight as they go in so I have not upgraded to better sizing dies.



I don't have stuck cases with the amount I use so....

The key to speed is having all your stuff laid out properly and loading a fresh case at the same time you unload the sized case. You can sweep the finished case out between your ring and middle finger as the ram comes down, load the fresh case with thumb and index then confirm/finish loading/guide the fresh case with the pinky as the ram goes up.
Drop the finished case on the way to the fresh cases with the left hand while the right hand is operating the press.

Of course the going is slower when sizing 1x fired MG brass.



Sometimes I will lube a bunch and not size them for days, then the lube dries enough so you don't even have to tumble the lube off.

I use the Dillon spray lube and a half-gallon bucket with a lid. Spray once, put the lid on and shake, then spray again. never had a problem with it.
Link Posted: 7/12/2016 12:17:19 PM EST
You have to shake it......

I put them in a plastic gallon ziplock, spray, roll them around, good to go. Keep the bag for next batch.

Never had a stuck case with Hornady spray lube...
Link Posted: 7/12/2016 12:46:26 PM EST
You have to use a TON more one shot than any other lube. (see video where he does all 4 sides in a loading block...)

RCBS spray lube, a few squirts on 50 cases laying randomly in a box, no problem, for those same 50 cases, I have to use a LOT more one shot and I have to have them in a loading block or they will stick.


I don't use one shot anymore even though I used it for a while with no real problems. Other products are better and last a lot longer.

Yeah I figured my OneShot cost one time and it came out to about 1/3 of a cent per case. Well worth it for the even distribution, time savings, lack of mess and no need to remove the lube if left to dry.


That is me in the video, so 1/3 of a cent for that usage.
Link Posted: 7/12/2016 3:28:09 PM EST
I have never had an issue with it in the 10 or so years I have been using it.
Link Posted: 7/12/2016 4:14:57 PM EST
Nope HOS fondly known as Hornady One Stuck is not the best spray lube.
But, most of the problems can be traced back to user error. Personally, I like
Dillon Spray Lube. And, I have never stuck a case with Imperial Die Wax!
Link Posted: 7/12/2016 4:43:36 PM EST
Imperial has been the best i've used but you can't do a ton of cases at one time for the progressive. Imperial is the go to for my single stage precision work.
Re using a bag for brass and spray lubes has made a huge improvement but for the cost the home made lanolin and alcohol mixture in a cheap pump bottle and a plastic bag has beat all my spray lubes and way cheaper. at 10:1 i'm still on my first tiny bottle of lanolin and done thousands of .223
Link Posted: 7/12/2016 5:27:12 PM EST
One Shot sucks ass. I've been using Frankford Arsenal case lube for fifteen years. No stuck cases.

That's the trick with one shot, you have to use a lot of it. After watching your vid, I see I was never using enough.

You are moving some cases too. Ever pinch that finger?

This is the answer, the end.

One 12 oz bottle of RED BOTTLE HEET from auto zone, one oz of Liquid Lanolin ... best, and cheapest, lube I have ever used. Don't get sucked into the 99% vs 91% vs some other % alcohol and waste brain cells ..... just go get a $2 bottle of RED BOTTLE IsoHEET from autozone ....it is 99%....and a bottle of Liquid Lanolin and mix it 12 parts ISO to 1 part LL. Yes, it's that easy...the thread tells the story.

Used to use One Shot .... yea, I could make it work, but for me and the quantities I run, it doesn't compare to the bootleg stuff and it is certainly more expensive.

Caution ...if you are used to using One Shot and try the bootleg .... you will find you will want to use, and will only need to use, A LOT less product. A little goes a long way, and it works great.

Here is one of the dozen or so video's about it .... this shows how a little goes a long way.

I use an empty gallon plastic ice cream container (or a cardboard box) to swirl and spray them in (which also sets up some of the necks).

ymmv, but I doubt it, try it and you won't go back imo
Link Posted: 7/14/2016 10:59:51 AM EST
Frankford Arsenal spray. Been using it for 15 years now. The only stuck case was a .223 where I was teaching a teen how to reload rifle cases. He'd been loading pistol for his dad from since he was little, ( live across the street ), and he was wanting to know how to load for his AR. With the Frandford stuff, you have to wait a minute or so or it will dent cases, also, you need to load a lubed case and then a couple of non lubed ones, then a lubed one, and repeat or you can dent the shoulder. I make one squirt on each side of a loading tray, then use the method above. It works well. The kid was doing it and lost count and loaded four unlubed cases and stuck one.
Link Posted: 7/14/2016 10:46:17 PM EST
Pitch it and get the Dillon lube.
Link Posted: 7/15/2016 8:11:22 PM EST
I use spray lube for pistol cases, even though I use carbide dies. It smooths the operation considerably.

Imperial Sizing Die Wax is the only lube I use on bottle-necked cases for over ten years now.

.223 seems to get away with using spray lubes because of the small diameter being resized. I would not recommend any spray lube for Lake City 7.62x51mm brass.
Link Posted: 7/16/2016 9:54:48 AM EST
I never get stuck cases, ever. Use pure lanolin liquid and 91% isopropyl alcohol. You can use 70% but you have to shake vigourously before each use. 91's just better. I make case lube for around 40 bucks a gallon now. A gallon lasts me a couple years even at my extremely high loading volume. Place brass in a ziplok bag, spray a few squirts of lanolin lube, shake and stir, let sit for a few minutes to dry, size.

Link Posted: 7/17/2016 2:36:35 PM EST
The hornady wax is what I use. That stuff is incredible. I put a dab on my fingers and run them thru my bin of pistol brass before they hit the Dillon and sizing is much easier.

I've never had an issue doing this exactly. I'll do a couple hundred 223 in the bag at once. If they seem a little harder to size than usual, just give them another shot. Reuse that bag forever if you can. The more it builds up, the less spray you'll need.
Link Posted: 8/2/2016 12:00:53 PM EST
One shot works great for pistol. Had a lot of stuck 223 and ripped rims. Went back to using the RCBS lanolin spray for 223

i have switched to Imperial even on my dillion ill never use anything else now.

One Shot for pistol.

Dillon spray lube for rifle.
Link Posted: 9/26/2016 10:46:02 AM EST
Hmmm. I've never used lube on my straight walled pistol and have only used one-shot on for rifle .223/5.56 - .308 I can count on 2 fingers how many stuck rifle cases I've had over the past 20 years.

I AGREE!

But I still use it... I like Dillon spray allot too!

I use it cause its convent. But I think I found a better replacement.

I recently tried ROYAL form Midway. WOW this is almost as good as imperial Sizing wax!!

I think I have bought my last one-shit!!

Imperial is hands down the best I have found... BUT its applied with fingers and simply not as convenient. I will ALWAYS use it for case forming!! But for regular resizing, no. Give this Roy a try next time you can get some. plus it smells great!

Tried one shot a bunch of different ways and I still got stuck cases. Switched to a lube pad and haven't had any since.
Link Posted: 10/31/2016 10:40:55 PM EST
I switched from Imperial to One Shot.

Never had an issue with it at all.

It works. Read the directions. If you refuse to read directions and are reloading, you need to stop and reassess whether this is a hobby or a discipline.

Used it for nearly a decade. Never had a stuck case. 7 types of rifle case over 20K+ reloads

HOS best known as Hornady One Stuck! Of course, people do not read the directions, and this probably leads to the issues probably for the most part.

The best and only use for HOS is a light mist of pistol cases before putting them in the case feeder.

I use a variation of Shake and Bake when applying Dillon Spray lube. I use a box and mist a fog into the box and close the lids. Then shake and then let the box set for a while. I do several boxes at the same time, so by the time the first one is done the first ones are ready to go.

Link Posted: 12/10/2016 1:15:16 PM EST
I use it for almost all my reloading.

I don't have any problems with it with rifle brass but I don't skimp on it.

Use it correctly and it works fine.

Try to pinch a penny and use too little, you will stick a case.
