Problems pulling the sleeve out of the powder funnel

Hello everyone

My problem is this:
In the `Powder Funnel` step, the sleeve sticks when you pull it out.
I have to pull the lever with both hands to release.
I'm afraid to break the shellplate.
I use Magtech's CBC sleeves.
The caliber is 9 mm.
The sleeve and funnel are clean.
Where is the problem ?.
Please excuse my English, I'll take a translator.

MfG Ernst

If you wet clean your cases, or dry tumble them too long, this removes the light coating of carbon from the inside of the case. This carbon residue acts as a lubricant on the powder funnel.

Hello ,

Thanks for the feedback .
That is correct ,
I wash the tubes in the washing machine in sodium for one hour at 60 ° C. They are then dried in an oven at 70 ° C.
I’ll try graphite,
to lubricate the funnel.

Give the brass a light spray of case lube and it makes the process much smoother.
