SDB Jambs on downstroke

Hello fellow reloaders. I own a SDB press and I have a question. Every now and again on the downstroke the press jambs up, and it takes a bit of force to un jamb it. Did anyone ever run into this problem, and if so, how do you fix it. Thanks in advance. Happy Easter!

Are you using cases that have been wet cleaned? if so lube the case.

I had a similar issue and I dont wet clean my cases. The cartridge is sticking to the powder funnel.The powder funnel has developed some spec of rust on it and I suspect that is what is causing it.

RE: SDB Jambs on downstroke

The only time I've had that issue is when the case isn't aligned properly for the resizing die (Staion 1 I believe).  I strongly advise that you never "force" your SDB, if it doesn't operate smoothly then something it wrong, correct the issue and continue reloading.
