Being basically of lube. I have been doing well for some yrs & yes it has been a chore, but am up against even more as I shoot so much due to fast use of reloads as I shoot at least three times of every week of he year.
Second question is who amongst the people that sell dies makes the seating adjustment of hex head? The knurled one soon become a chore & use of pliers--I know that sounds & is terrible. Once I get this one cleaned up I will groove the head for the use of a braod slot screwdriver & that should help. Still accumilation of lube does make it tougher all the time.
I have a hunch I will have to buy another set of dies from my 45ACP & just wish I could buy 2 or 4 of the seating die only. That would make it easier to remove one that feels like it is developing lube build up & put in a clean or new one while I spend the time to clean the lube on said one in temporary problem.
I do have a compressor so thinking of what I can use to loosen up the caked lube & then hit the die with the compressor. Might use some "Dunk-It" for my first try. Like soak it for around an hour & then hit all parts with the compressor & final clean-up with clean cloths & normal oils for easing up the threaded parts.
Any suggestions to the above would be greatly appreciated.
