Stage 1

I have an issue with brass getting stuck in stage 1 of my Square Deal. Brass was so tightly stuck that when I pulled on the leaver it sheared the shell plate bolt. What could be causing this ?

Have you cleaned out the inside of the resizing die?

What caliber? We do recommend using case lube, just to reduce the effort needed to resize the case, and cycle the handle. Larger diameter, taller cartridges benefit more from use of lube.

RE: Stage 1

respectfully, are you sure you have the correct sizing die in there? Several of my shooting buddies have been known to forget to change the 'guts' under the head when they change cailbers.

RE: Stage 1

I only reload 9mm - was working and then brass started to stick. No apparent reason.
