338 rum stuck cases

hi im new to this site. was wondering if anyone has some tips for sizing 338 rum cases. ive tried different lubes, different dies, and still end up with a few stuck cases. i reload several thousand rounds per year in a lot of different calibers. this is the only cal that gives me problems. they are once fired rounds, none are hot loads. any tips or suggestions will help thanks,,

Re: 338 rum stuck cases

might be your loading dies...

if your cases are clean and well lubed, I'd suspect the loading dies. check the insides for lathe marks or such.

Re: 338 rum stuck cases

For reasons not worth explaining I've had a lot of stuck cases over the last several decades of reloading. Every one was because I used an improper lube or failed to apply it sufficently well around the thicker head part of the case.
