    I was reloading last night when all of sudden, the resizing collet would not go back to the open position and has the hull trapped. This is the first time it happened and dont quite know what to do. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks. JM

    Look for a BB holding the fingers closed.

    I would gently tap on the resizing ring that goes around the collet with a nylon type hammer. I may be wrongly assuming that the handle is still partially down also. I would gently lift on it as I tapped the ring down. Let me know if I have the right picture in mind. If this opens it then clean the collet out, usually shot stuck in it. Jackie B.

    Lack of lube can do this also.
