    I was wondering if you can buy RCBS die parts in Portland. I snapped the decap pin on a .270 die. I started looking at the whole rod when I was taking it out and notice that it is bent. I have only loaded about 30 rounds with it. I don't know if it came that way or if I did it. I haven't really had any problems with it. Can you bend them in normal operation? I haven't forced anything. I was also wondering if I could put the expander ball on a .308 rod with the .308 pin temporarily? Thanks

    Call rcbs and they will send you how ever many you need or want, but it take about five days, I think ytou can use the 30 cal rod but put the 27 expander on it. I will stop now as the beer is working well.

    Thanks, that is what I will do. I really believe it came that way. Sprice37, thanks for the offer, but I think I will send it in.

    I think more are bent, than straight. I was adjusting my 223 decap pin about an hour ago. as I screwed it down , you could see the wobble in the pin.:(

    Ever sit on hold with RCBS listen to the soft hidden message in the background......kind of freaked me out at first.
    They will take care of you after your 20-30 min. wait, no questions.

    Most likely too late to help here but

    I have used a finish nail as a de-capping pin to "finish" loading and until I could get a new pin.

    Cut off the nail head, chuck it up in a hand drill, and file a radius/ball on both ends.

    just sayin'
