Does anyone have a spare decapping pin/rod for a Lee die (9mm Luger) to sell

    Was in a grove and somehow I managed to get my case sideways and before I could correct the case placement, my other hand was already on the handle of the press on the down stroke and slammed it on the side of the case breaking the pin. This is my only gripe about the Lee dies (only 9mm die set that I could fine at this time) The decapping pin is welded to the decapping rod and once you break the pin from the rod, your decapping day is pretty much over.

    thank you all.

    Its.not.immediate. But get on Lee Precision website. Fill out the online form, you have to track down the part number, upload a picture of the broken pin to your claim and they'll mail you a new rod with pin for free! Lee takes care of their customers.

    Thanks, I just did this as you suggested. This is my only gripe about Lee dies, most of my other dies have replaceable pins.

    I have the Lee 9mm Deluxe pistol die set and the decapping pin with that set is removable and relaceable. I did break the decapping pin for my 223 die once (my fault) and Lee had me up and reloading again in under 5 days. Great sevice. Good luck!
