    I have a Ljutic LTX PRO 3. I shot about 7 rounds (boxes) today, and the guns ejector got stock in the down postition about 10 times. I needed to get the wad knocker and kick the shell out, and that would release the ejector. Has anyone else experienced this, and what is the fix? I greased it up a bit, but that didnt seem to make a difference. Thank you for any advise/help you can give.

    The spring also seems very good and strong.

    Pull and clean all areas around ejector. Check ejector spring to make sure it is factory spec. Clean and brush chamber. Roy

    Thank you Roy. I have cleaned as well as I can without pulling it apart. I'm not a gunsmith, and dont like to take things apart without knowing the mechanics. Is this an easy thing to take apart?

    I have had the same problem with my Pro3. The only thing I can come up with is after the hull has been reloaded several times the base must become week and over expand in the chamber. I reload Remington gun clubs (steel base) If the hull has only been reloaded 3 or 4 times I have no problem.

    My Pro 3 will work perfectly with any new shell I have tried. I do not reload. My older Mono Gun occasionally will not eject the cheapy steel based shells. No problem with new brass based shells. Marc

    I had this problem with my Ljutic Mono Gun ARS. The problem was the resizing when I reloaded. I tightened my resizer a little and have never had the problem again.

    For the record, I've fired every kind of new shell in the gun as well. Brass and steel base shells work just fine. The only time I've ever had any trouble was when they weren't resized properly.

    I guess I never even thought about it being in the resizing portion of the reloader. I will check to see where I have my settings. Thanks you all for your responses. Rodney

    A collet style resizer is the best, like the MEC adjust it down to about .803
    .800 is about what a new shell is if my memory serves me correct. Mic a few new shells and see the dimension then set the collet to just a little less.

    The rim diameter is what is important.
