I don't know if it's because I have a new gun but I had a heck of a time pulling it off the fitting.
Check the end of your grease gun. Most can be adjusted. All you have to do is twist it. They are designed to fit different size zerk fittings.

I just use NAPA's best wheel bearing grease. Over 25,000 miles on the trailer now with now bearing issues.
