Dillon Case Lube

I am getting back in to reloading with my upgraded Dillon RL 550B press and I am starting with 308 Win. In the past I had reloaded 45 ACP with carbide dies and no lube on the RL 550B, but the 308 Win cases require lube. I used to reload 50 BMG on a RCBS press and I lubed my cases with RCBS Case Lube-2 on a pad for the body and Neco dry neck lube for the neck. The cases resized with minimal effort. I have a bottle of Dillon Case Lubricant and I gave it a try on several hundred 308 Win cases. The lubricant worked fine, but made a mess of my RL 550B press. Is this normal? Photo attached.

RE: Dillon Case Lube

You could be overlubing the cases. However, overlubing is preferable to applying insufficient lube.

I lay mine out on tin foil and then spray, roll them a bit and spray again using a sweeping motion. Make sure to let the liquid carrier dry for a few minutes.
