After picking 2nd time, American 1106 won't open with key

I just finished picking an American 1106 for the second time, and after clicking the shackle closed I noticed that the core was over rotated slightly. The guard won't allow a key to be inserted to open the lock. This was a new lock. Anyone had this problem?

Ya just stick a thicker like .025 pick in and turn the core. If you happened to really rotate it way past the anti drill plate, and just cannot get it to budge, you can pick it in reverse.

Just fudge with it, (gently) and it should turn.

Although I raked it afterward to try to free up any stuck pins, I got to thinking maybe a quick rake wasn't enough to free it up if it was really stuck. Sure enough, I was a really tightly stuck pin. Freed that up with my hook and the lock works perfectly now.
