I'm a very big fan of Lee Gear and own and use lots of it, but believe me you don't want to use the Lee lube because it's shit.

I use the Forsters case Lube

This will be available in NZ and you don't use much

My bottle is still half full after 5 years

Spread few drops over an unused Stamp Pad, roll the case over the pad take a cotton bud roll it over the ink pad then a couple of swipes inside the neck and jobs done.

Thanks Pete, cheaper than I thought. Will have a hunt round Chch tomorrow and see how I get on.

Will give the brass Dundee sent me a go and have a measure with some 1 or 2x fired Norma. Or crush it one or the other...

You can make your own from Lanolin disolved in white spirits or alcohol. A very small amount goes a very long way. Makes your hands oh so lovely too.

Settled on hornady case lube for now (others x NI) and had to hold my ankles and went into bum shitty for a shell holder (should have purchased earlier and wouldn't have been a problem).

But honestly 30% more??? Fkn ring pirates. Unfortunately I struck a very helpful yank behind the counter, still won't go back unless I have to

In future don't waste money on case lube when Vaseline will do the same job.......as shown to me by ex army amoures. But if you insist then you must.

There's no need to ask why an Armourer would have some Vaseline handy. 8-)
