    Steel wire is hard and has a copper coating for lubricity while feeding, but can load up the liner with shavings. SS wire is very soft and tends to gall or drag in the liner.

    Blow out your liner and try again. Increasing tension the v rollers more could deform the wire so be careful. If all else fails you might try putting the u groove rollers on and increasing the roller tension much more.

    Good Luck
