After about 30 rounds my Taurus Tracker begins to stick, the trigger will only move a small amount, same with the hammer unless helped by turning the cylinder. Lubrication and cleaning has not helped much at all. Letting it "cool down" generally will allow another 10 or 20 rounds before contiually sticking or binding up again.
Any thoughts on what part (s) might be the issue?

Thanks for the reply. Federal, Remmington. It wouldn't be the ammo, it's mechanically locking up internally.
I am beginning to think it might have something to do with the hammer lock mech.

What you have is a timing issue with the cylinder. Taurus revolvers are known for this.
You can send it in for warranty work, and wait to see if it actually gets fixed. Or take it to a local gunsmith, and get it fixed

It seems to be an internal lock up. Turning the cylinder lifts the hand and seems to free up the binding internal part.
Took the side frame off and ran it about two or tree hundred cycles and of course it didn't have an issue.
