Chris King bottom bracket injector use

Trying to service my Chris king BB with the injector tool. I'm having trouble getting the tool in far enough, or at least I think that's my problem. Even with a fair amount of force, I get just past the seal, and the grease isn't going where it's needed. It just hangs out in the BB shell.

I did remove the plastic sleeves, and videos I've seen suggest it being no more of an issue than just stick it in a squeeze some grease in, but I feel like I'd really have to force to get the seal past the little lip inside the BB.

Anyone know about this?

Think I got it. It looked like the gasket on the tool wasn't quite seated correctly. Since it's a relatively tight fit, it was preventing the tool from getting to where it needed to be.
