    I have a Redding 3RB. I don't know the age. It was given to me. Ever since I got it, it catches on the down stroke about 1/2 the time. When it doesn't have powder it works perfect. I went on line and there was a lot of discussion about not "cutting".
    I assume this is what is happening. Is there anything I can do about this? It is getting worse as time goes by. I have also noticed that the loads are getting less accurate. Thanks

    I SOLD mine.
    Redding equipment for the most part is the best; not their measure, though.
    Go to Quick Measure - An Accurate Powder Measure.
    Now, I've been reloading a long time. This one is the most accurate measure I have ever seen. I bought one for rifle/pistol and one for the 50BMG. NO CUTTING of the kernels.
    There is NO comparison with the rest of the pack, any brand, especially using the extruded rifle powders AND he makes an adapter to use on progressive loaders.
