Do you need to use case lube for 9mm
With Carbide die sets (doing handgun loads) you really don’t need to lube your casings, but it is not going to hurt if you decide to do so.
IMHO putting any amount of oil on a case is a bad idea.
No matter what amount.
Granted you don’t need to lube cases using pistol carbide dies..
Does Case Lube affect powder
In short yes you can do this without any adverse effects with the right lube. I know on the Lee case lube it says does not degrade powder so with that it hurts nothing. You might try reading the lube container and it should say.
What can I use for case lube
STP motor oil additive, Bag Balm, Vaseline, Pam cooking spray, Liquid Lanolin dissolved in 99% Isopropyl Alcohol (Dillon spray lube), Baby Shampoo, Dawn dishwasher detergent, regular engine oil, plain cooking oil.
Can you use WD 40 For Case Lube
WD-40 is not a good case lube, regardless of whether it will “work”. It is not a lube at all really, despite being used as one. It does not last long as a lubricant. It dries out and quits lubing long before real lubes stop working.
Can you use gun oil for case lube
I use whatever gun oil is on the bench when I load the short WCF’s. Those thin cases and gentle tapers don’t need much lube. Much quicker and easier than going the spray lube route.
Why do you need case lube
Lubing cases is a simple but vital step in the reloading process. It makes sure the cases run smoothly through the various dies on your reloading press. Choose the lube and process that make the most sense for your reloading needs. And be sure to clean out your dies afterwards.

Do you need to lube 9mm brass
I never lube 9mm. Or 380, 40, 45, 38spl, or 357mag for that matter. When I first started wet tumbling my brass, using Dawn dishwashing soap, I started having problems with the brass sticking on the expander (powder funnel on a Dillon). Seems the polish used when dry tumbling acts as a sort of lube.
Do you have to resize 9mm brass
It is always necessary to resize 9mm brass. Even if it goes back in the same chamber, it must be sized down to have a firm grip on the bullet.
