Right there! Except I use the Hornady Unique in a tub for lube.

Also make sure the vent hole (if your die has one) is clear. That is in the area of the shoulder so it surfaces outside the die in the threads. It’s small and a fine piece of wire will be needed to clear it. It might be under the lock ring if you have trouble finding it.
