Clean it up and then put a couple drops of Rem oil on it and it shouldn't get stuck.2shotal said:Thanks Ricochet- yes it did help because it confirmed what I did which was not to use the washer or lock nut that came with the original die.
However, I must say I'm disappointed with the Hornady seating die because the 'floating' seating stem gets stocked on top of the alignment sleeve and I have to tap it or remove the case/bullet and go up/down with the press arm a couple of times for it to slide into the alingment sleeve.
Other than that, it works fine.
Big Med...that is exactly what I told him. I douched mine out with brake cleaner, and used Rem-Oil. That certainly helped, but I also don't like the Hornady dies. Mine were free, so don't look a gift horse in the mouth!big medicine said:Clean it up and then put a couple drops of Rem oil on it and it shouldn't get stuck.
