Does it pull the bullet out of a dummy round with no powder?
Too much powder in the case and you are trying to compress too much?

I havent tried it with a dummy round, I dont think there is too much powder, becuase sometimes it works just fine, i dunno im going to give it a good clean today when i get home, cuz like i said before i brushed it with a little brush you brush the inside of your brass neck with and it seemed to help some. Do yo know why its cutting a little ring around the bullet right below the bullet?

My experience with this has been that the bullet has an excessive amount of resistance going into the brass. Either the neck was sized too tightly or the bullet is catching on the mouth of the case or it's a very fragile bullet. Generally only seen this with varmint bullets... You've never said what bullet you were using...

Sorry, I am using Accubonds. Good news is that I cleaned the die and the sticking problem is gone, and the ring is only slightly there now. should i use a little case lube and brush the inside of the brass neck?

Do you chamfer the inside of the case mouth? I would use a VLD cutter like the Lyman VLD.

You put a cutter into the mouth of the case and cut a little bit of an angle on it. Allows the bullets to enter the case mouth easier. Also do the same to the outside of the case (with a different cutter) to clean off burrs and such after it is trimmed.
This is so you can see what it looks like.

The Lyman is the 8th one down. The others are the combination inside outside chamfer and deburring tools. The difference is the angle they cut. The VLD is a steeper angle and allows easier starting. IMO
