Loading .44 Mag on a XL650

Among the several calibers I handload with my XL650, the hardest to operate is the .44 Mag (NB : Dillon dies too).  My shoulder gets tired between 50-100 rounds and what started as a pleasure becomes hard work.  I wonder about lubing the cases to smooth up the operation but am held back at the thought of gumming up the insides of the case distributor and powder funnel.

RE: Loading .44 Mag on a XL650

Use a light spritz of case lube on your .44 Magnum cases. This will significantly decrease the effort required to size them. If you are so inclined, lube about 1/3rd of your brass, then mixed the lubed and unlubed cases together. This will provide sufficient lube to size cases much easier.
