I tried swaging some bullets with my new CH-4D 101-series hollow-point dies today. The swaged bullet ejector (HP punch) gets stuck hard in the newly-formed hollow point using both my .355- and .357-caliber dies. I have to pry the bullet off the HP tip of the ejectors, marring those shiny new bullets.
I tried putting some lube on the hollow-point tip of the ejectors, but that didn't help.
I tried adjusting the ejector tip up to the point where it isn't worth having a hollow point - didn't help.
I tried raising the die body to the point where it barely begins forming an ogive - didn't help.
In all cases, the bullet drops right out with a couple of light taps on the ejector -- but the bullet stays stuck on the ejector tip.
While I was fiddling with it, I noticed that the point of the stem was rather rough so I polished it -- that didn't help either.
I'm using pure lead and Corbin's swaging lube. I also tried RCBS case sizing lube. While I'm learning, I'm using Corbin's .35-caliber jackets. (Trying exotic jackets like spent ammo cases will come later -- after I get my current problem solved.)
What is the secret to not get the ejector HP tip stuck in the new bullet's hollow point?
