    Difficulty 'resizing' suggests a problem getting cases fully into the die, necks hanging up on the expander ball after sizing isn't the same thing.

On the 270, the upstroke is so hard it takes my full body weight and almost lifts the bench off the ground. I can't have anything on the bench, it will fall over. I am lubing the case with the rcbs finger wax very liberally, the down stroke is fairly easy......do I need to lube inside the neck also?

    Help please.
    Well, the upstroke is actually the downstroke of the ram. I'm really amazed you aren't pulling the casehead off.

    I know if I applied that much pressure to reaize, I'd be pulling stuck cases and probably trashing dies, willy nilly.

    Now the down stroke is really the upstroke and thats where the sizing is taking place. Sounds to me like the expander ball has an issue. There aren't bushing dies per chance?
