Replacing RCBS sizer ball with Carbide?

Anyone tried replacing the standard rcbs sizer ball with one of the aftermarket carbide ones?

I think it was hornady that makes a complete replacement setup so you do not have to lube the case necks on rifle cartraiges.

I am just trying to avoid lubing inside the case necks because I am lazy.

Carbide neck expander ball is one of the very best investments you can make!!! I've been using them for years.

Thanks,

I think I will order them for all my rifle calibers. This lubing inside the case neck is a pain.

I have become spoiled by reloading pistol so much.

I'm assuming you just screw out the old expander ball stem & replace it with a drop in?

What's the retro cost?
