Sticking 550 primer slide

Hi, all.

I tried searching on this issue before I posted this, so if anyone else has posted this previously, please feel free to post a link to it. Before I call Dillon on this, I thought I would ask the folks here on TFL.

I'm having an issue with my Dillon 550b. The primer slide seems to stick at about halfway on the return stroke, after picking up a new primer. I've taken the assembly apart and cleaned it, ensured that the screws have been adequately torqued down, but the problem persists. I'm not sure why this is happening.

It only recently started doing this, and for the past 11,000 rounds the press has been operating flawlessly.

Has anyone had a similar experience with a 550b?

Thanks in advance,
