    Here is the deal, i have an RCBS 9mm carbide die set and the resizing/depriming die has a carbide insert for sizing, that carbide peace came out on me. I used some loctite red and tapped it back in. I started using lube after that but it came out again.
    Anybody had this happen? is there a way to fix? or do i need to get a new die?:confused:

    Call RCBS,they will replace the die.
    They have excellent customer service and will take care of you.

    I have had dealings with RCBS,worn out presses,broken parts caused by me,the list goes on,and all have been taken care of no questions asked.
    They were surprised to find that i had worn out a press to the point it was not repairable,sent a brand new upgraded modern version in place :thumbup:

    those carbide inserts are usually press fit

    locktit aint going to help. the friction caused by the resizing will get the die hot. maybe enough to loosen the locktit.

    as said, give RCBS a call.
