The press goes down ok, but coming up it’s like a two stage pull and it gets stuck on almost every case. Anyone else have this issue when resizing?

Are you doing rifle cases or straight walled cases and if they are straight walled cases are they by chance horndy dies

I’m loading 300 Win Mag.

If its sticking when you go to lift the handle/lower the ram, maybe you have to much lube or if using something like hornady one shot, not letting the liquid evaporate and hydraulically sticking them? I know the rcbs rock chucker has a cam over point, have you check or looked closely to see if something is getting out of alignment on the cam over or un camming? Maybe stupid thoughts but just throwing it out there... does it do it only on the 300 win mag?

Turned out I didn’t have the right lube for the die. I was using gun oil. I bought die wax. That solved it.

I've had really good results with one shot. Just have to give it a minute or 2 to let the spray medium evaporate or you can hydro stick them

I just got Imperial Die Wax. I’ve also heard great things about One Shot as well. The one that came with the RCBS press wasn’t good at all.

Glad it was an easy fix. I need to remember to pay attention to my upward force. When the bleeder holes fill with lube the force becomes too great and I run the risk of deforming my brass. 338 LM.

Haha. Yeah I dinged a few cases too. Just curious.. I’m heading to my range tomorrow (finally NJ bends the knee. Just sue them and they hide) and I loaded my cases a little bit bigger than the COL says it should be. They say 3.340, but mine (with polymer tips) are 3.587. I had them a bit longer the last batch I shot. But I’m not sure if these are the same or longer. So I just wanted to run it by here and see if it helps. I’m going either way. But if it’s really a risk of getting a bullet jammed then I’ll repress them down a bit in the morning before I go.

Oh ok. I didn’t know there was a one on the gun. I thought all the calibers were the same.

Just finished shooting. Only one round was a bit tight in the chamber. 100 of 100 made it out of the barrel alive. So I guess that was ok for my gun.

Good job.

Check the link below. I'm sure you've seen this piece. Give this a try. It will make you reloading more accurate and safer.

The tool is inexpensive and will help you produce a more accurate and repeatable round. A few extra tools and you'll be making quarter size holes and a quarter mile in no time. Save all your data.
Being and engineer and programmer back in the working days I came up with a saying which works for me.

"Too much information is almost enough"

Be safe, have fun, bring others along.

I bought it. Thanks for the advise. I remember someone on this forum once told me that reloading was the biggest addiction next to meth. At first I didn’t get it, but now.... I find myself sometimes saying “ahh, 20 rounds? It’s not worth sitting down to reload that. Let’s go to 80!!! As soon as I get home, I send them on the press. I’m carefully looking at the brass but I’m amazed how many times a Win Mag case can reload. I use starting grain loads. Mainly because that’s what gave me the most consistency. So the plus side is extra powder and more use on the brass! As soon as I see cracks on the ass or dents in the body or goes to a bucket for scrap! This is fun!
