his-tag protein problem

I have purified a C-terminal His-tagged peptide on a His-bind 900
cartridge from Novagen. When I run it on SDS-PAGE, it runs at twice the
expected MW. I guess it's a dimer via a single S-S since there's a single
Cys residue. Is there a reducing agent stronger than DTT/B-ME which will
unzip it to monomers?
