The lubricant on a SWC gets onto the outside of the loaded cartridge.  Does that need to be cleaned off?

While loading I get a small amount of power on the index dial and around it.  The Dillon manual says do not use a vacuum cleaner to clean that up.  What is typically used?

1) If the lube is really thick, I will wipe it off. If it's just a trace near the mouth, I will leave it be.  

2) I use a toothbrush or small paintbrush to wipe off spilled powder.  The reason for Dillon not recommending a vacuum is because of static electricity.  A vacuum hose will have static which could cause the powder to ignite.

I use "canned air" to gently blow debris away from the shellplate

An old shaving soap brush is a great tool to have around the shop. Try a bit more case bell to see if that helps with the lube issue. Best bet is to move to HiTec coated bullets
. Love them

I use a pastry brush.  The Zero bullet lubes seem to be ok.  Some of the cheaper cast bullets are covered with wax, so watch for the wax gumming up both your seater die and your crimp die.  

I second the recommendation of the powder coated bullets.  I also suggest depriming your brass and then wet washing it in a separate process if you want to keep your press cleaner.
