Didn't do any initial lube of the pad, but I use about 8-9 drops along the pad.
Generally there's enough in hand to size 3 or 4 cases for every one that I pick off the pad.
That's some good stuff that rcbs, a bottle lasts a long time, washes off with no soap, haven't stuck a case yet etc. First kind I tried and probobly the last.
The uncomfortable question common to all who have had revolutionary changes imposed on them: are we now to accept what was done to us just because it was done?
