My first Redding die. .270 Win B/FL 7r. Cleaned it thoroughly ran the first Norma through it and it felt sticky/binding towards the top of the stroke using imperial wax sparingly. Made noise like binding/sticking. I thought just brand new, 2nd one will be better. Wrong again. Stuck! I did manage to get it out ( drill and a bit of heat to soften brass. Probably not my smartest move) then took out the de-capper tossed the die in stainless media in case I missed something but after that and cleaning with Hoppes bench rest and dry rags same thing. Binding towards the top of the stroke. This time no bushing or de capper in. Took that piece of brass and it slid like glass through my Forster B/B/N die. Really wanted a die to fl size, bump, and bushing. I do have a mandrel so the bushing part I could live without but Redding has left a bad taste in my mouth.
