    I am having an issue with my MEC reloader. It is a Grabber. The head of the reloader is very difficult to pull and sometimes it gets stuck in the up position. Any ideas? I have checked it out and there is no shot stuck on the center post.

    Have you used anti-sieze lube on the collet sizer?

    Clean the press and lube it as per the instruction book and it will probably work fine. The Collet can cause all sorts of issues when it isn't lubed properly, so pay particular attention to cleaning and lubing it. Even a little foreign material or shot can cause troubles. Look for any broken or worn parts and replace as needed. Also, check the lever for cracking. Difficult operation can put undue stress on the operating handle and eventually cause bending/breakage.
