Brass necking down question

Im necking down some Lapua 308 brass for my 7/08, full length die, sizing wax and dry neck lube, it looks as if the necks are being pulled well out of square. Theres quite a bit of force required to get the case back out of the die so im wondering if the expander plug is the cause?
How else can i lube the inside of the neck? The dry neck lube doesnt look to be "sticking" to the inside of the neck.
Any help appreciated...

Put some sizing lube on a bore brush and brush the inside of the necks every 3 or 4 rounds. Or get a carbide expander ball.

But what do I know?
