Problem with case sticking in expansion.

I have two Square Deal B presses.  One is setup for 38 and one for 9mm.  On the 9mm the case hangs after expansion an powder charge.  This is not real bad but I would like to get it fixed.  Any ideas?

RE: Problem with case sticking in expansion.

Are you using new or fired cases? If fired, are the cases cleaned wet or dry? New cases and wet-cleaned cases will stick on the end of the funnel as the lack that light carbon coating that acts as a lubricant on the funnel. If you are loading either new or wet-cleaned cases, use steel wool or a scrubbing pad to wipe off the end of the powder funnel every 25-35 cases, to prevent the brass galling from building up on the end of the funnel.
