Default Need a little help

I am new to plug building. i recently got some equipment and am pretty excited about everything. Im having one problem though. When i put the wire through the body I cant wrap it into a circle in the back. I feel that the wire is too tough to bend that precisely. How do you guys do it? I would really like to hear. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

Not knowing what wires you're using,, or where they're coming from, I've heard folks talk about "annealing" the section that comes out of the plug before working them.
Sometimes a piece of stainless may get work hardened. Maybe the vendor has supply issues and tried something different? One never knows.
But heating it up with a propane torch and quickly quenching in cold water can soften it considerably depending on what you may have to begin with.
Worth a try?
