Bigger grinder will help. I have a cabelas 22 and it eats as fast as I can feed it, but I sharpen the blade every time. Just a quick job on fine sandpaper. Run blade in circular motion. Its easy. I am on my original blades and have have done a ALOT of deer, elk and hogs. A larger grinder is nice so not to have to cut the pieces up smaller.
I am guessing you have never sharpened your blade and that is why its becoming more difficult to grind.

I tend to run my grind through slightly frozen and I don't get as much clogging. If it is fully thawed it wants to plug up in the grinder.

I used a old hand grinder for years then my buddies wife got an attachement for her big old kitchenaid mixer.
That thing was more work than the old hand crank chopper my great granny gave me. I bought a Lem 1 hp 22 big bite
On a 40% off sale and very happy with it. I still chill the meat before I grind. I like being able to cut long strips and feed them thru it. It sure reduces the cutting time getting the meat ready to grind. No matter what grinder you use it still important to keep the plates and cutters in good shape. Its easy to clean up after the works done.

As others have mentioned, grinding with room temperature meat will result in quick clogging. Throw the meat in the freezer (or outside if it's cold out) until it's nearly frozen and things will go much smoother.
