Hey guys, I have loaded about 5k 9mm rounds on my Dillon 650 and the strokes are starting to feel gritty and they are getting gradually harder to press down.  So, I was wondering how you guys clean and maintain your progressive presses and how often you clean and maintain your presses.  Please share all you have.

Double check torque of all critical screws/bolts.
Main drive piston needs to be cleaned, re-lubed occasionally.
Handle links need to be lightly lubed.
Powder funnel needs to be cleaned/swabbed with q-tips to get rid of crud

Get a spare parts kit for your press. Plastic stuff will age/embrittle/break eventually.

Dillon can provide more details and you'll enjoy the chat.
