Model 67 Cylinder Binding

I bought an early model S&W 67 with the stainless sights. After about 3 cylinders of wadcutters the cylinder started binding. I looked and couldn't see anything that would cause this. So I cleaned it real well in Hoppes #9 and the problem seems to have disappeared. It seems like I recall some Smiths having a problem like this years ago. Can anyone shed some light on this? And Happy New Year!

Check the barrel cylinder gap, endshake of the cylinder, the dirt under the "star" at rear of cylonder and if any are not right send it to a real "expert" S&W smith.
