I have been using the wax for 2+ decades, and use thier graphite for neck mouths. I cannot even guess how many thousand rounds I have used this stuff on, without any problem of any sort.
I did try OneShot earlier this year, interesting stuff, but I did have some problems with 300 mag cases. You do have to lay down a lot of spray for it to work properly. Convenient, but I do not believe the can will last very long.
Imperial remains my go to case lube.

You know I hear people say they had this or that trouble. I can't say I have knock on wood after over 5 years of use. Also hear people say you have to lay down all this spray. It just takes two swipes. I am not sure what others are doing.

..........But you still use Imperial to lube the insides of the necks, right??

Yep, I just see a big difference in concentricity the smoother I make the expander ball coming out.

I want to try the graphite. Just never got around to it. I think that would be the cats meow for inside necks.

I have my first tin of imperial wax and I do like it where it's needed, but I use lee collet dies on most of my bottle neck cases and no lube is required with them. When loading 45/70 brass I have been using it and I think it does work great.

Redding Imperial has come out with a small can of tiny balls (ceramic?) that are to be used with graphite, easing the use of graphite for necks. I gotta say.... brilliant. Why didn't I think of that?
Guessing this will make a container of graphite last about 4 generations.
