If the binding is while you try to close the lever to push the cartridge into the chamber, then try pushing up on the carrier from the bottom while closing the lever to see if that is smoother.  If so, the carrier is not staying all the way up, usually due to insufficient tension from the carrier spring.

 :)  Hummmmmmm   ;)

Normally, a '76 wouldn't be in my wheel house, but I did work on a few in the past, and a Toggle Link Rifle is a Toggle Link Rifle.

A bullet with an excessively wide nose will hang up on the Barrel Breach Face.  Anything even looking like a Semi-Wadcutter will hang up on the Barrel Breach Face.  It's a Tube Magazine feel rifle.  It will not play well without a firm crimp.  Bullets without a crimp groove are a waste of time.  They WILL turtle.

The "Double Feed" indicates your ammunition is too short.  The Nose of the round in the Carrier Block has to be long enough to hold the next round far enough in the Magazine for the Return Ramp to be able to push the next round back into the tube.

The tolerance between the "Knob" of the Carrier Block Arm and the Raceway in the Carrier Block is such, you will not be able to get much if any Epoxy to change the lift.  The lift can be changed slightly by CAREFULLY bending the Arm.

ALWAYS work on the cheapest part FIRST.

Thank you for the tip. Sounds like I have a bunch of single shot bullets.

I'll agree with Coffin Maker ----double feed sez round too short  - forget the book specs and load to suit the rifle.
 
Using blackpowder?  yees? use enough powder compression to support the rounds from "turtling"

maybe forget the crimp groove and crimp into the top of the lube groove or just crimp wherever is best length for the gun

needs some crimp to turn the neck of the case in or else that will hang up on the chamber mouth .

My Uberti (45/75 rifle) has a quite noticeable chamfer on the chamber mouth

I cut some of my cases short and crimp into the top of the lube groove.

If I make em full chamber length and crimp over the ogive = use the powder column to support the boolit position - that works too

blackpowder makes life easy assembling rounds for lever guns.
 
I get your frustration!!!!!!!.
