Cam tight to turn by hand?

Putting my 454 together and everything has been going good until I get the cam installed. I lubed everything with the supplied comp cams lube as well as used a mixture of oil and stp treatment on the bearings and journals. Cam is very hard to get started turning but once I get it started it is smooth. If I stop it is hard to start turning again. Any Ideas why this maybe. A lot of lube possibly causing it to stick?
