25 WSSM sticking cases

I have a problem with loading 25 wssm. the case sometimes will not go in to the die or if it will sometimes it will not go into the chamber with out sticking but other times it slides right in. I've tried different types of lube spray,cream and oil looking stuff all do the same .I reload for 26-06,6.5-06,338lapua,7mm rum,22-250,223,260,308,7mm stw,222,243 and 7mm mag with no problems both semi and bolt guns any ideas would be a big help
THANKS

Take a fired case and roll it across a flat surface and see if it is true. In particular see if the case head is still square.

no it is not it seems to be bulged on one side but the hole case seems bulged at the bottem. Its swelled 3/4 around think the chamber is way out of square?
thanks for your help.

Re: 25 WSSM sticking cases

Take the bolt out of your rifle and look at the wear pattern on the lugs. If one is like new and the other is scraped up badly then it is your lugs out of true.

Otherwise my best guess is the same as yours, a goofy chamber ( I know because I have one in a Rem 700).

Re: 25 WSSM sticking cases

one side is scraped more than the other but the other side show's some wear. Maybe that's why nobody chambers this round any more but it shoot's really good just scraps brass on new brass 1out of 5. Think maybe i'll set the barrel back and rechamber you know start there ?
