    Is the re e a lube or something I can use to help with hulls sticking in my dies? They stick so bad with 12 gauge I cannot use the electric drive. They are old silver AA. I bought several thousand ounce fired a few years ago

    Try cleaning the dies with 12 GA. Brass brush and cleaning solvent. Wipe clean and lightly oil ( I use 3 in 1 oil). Also if you have the brush or mop attachment lightly oil them. Good luck. Shoot straight.

    You may need to run them through a super-sizer.

    Be sure the 2 screws on the Autodrive clutch are properly torqued.

    Adjust the final crimp die round over depth. You may be crushing the round over too much and swelling the top
