God Bless the Single Stage
The decapper broke because the shell plate didn't index like it should and the primer was not over the hole. The decapper is supposed to rise up if it hits an obstruction, but it did not and snapped like a toothpick.on the lee decapper? did you try to decap non boxer brass? or was the stem loose so it could cock over?
did the pin break or the colelt not move?
i've broke a rcbs decap pin on 30-06 before getting the lee decapper.. but ti was a berdan I missed.. at least once..
i don't often see LNL complaints... keep us posted.
That is what I did but the one I got rid of was the RCBS Pro2000. I have had the Dillon 650 for 2 years now and love it. Even my wife comment on how I sped my time reloading instead of currsing and trying to fix an ill enginered tool. Any of the Dillons are great, you get what you paid for except in POLITICS.I'm not ready to give up on Hornady yet. Their customer service has been good so far. I agree that their working hours should take into account that most of their customers have to work during working hours. But is it refreshing to speak to a CS agent that actually speaks English.
The serious issues to me are the accuracy and stability of indexing and the primer feed system. If I can't get those two to work reliably I will sell the press take a loss and buy the Dillon 650. Small parts like springs & pawls can be replaced pretty quickly, but if the primer feed system is not reliable and the indexing cannot stay calibrated I have no use for the press.
I've not had any of those issues with customer service except for the working hours. The CS people I've talked to have never given me a hassle and the parts usually get here in two days.1. Good cutomer service is not giving customers a hard time about sending a few indexing pawls that cost under a buck....
2. Good customer service is being available more than 8-5 on monday - thursday. these are better than bankers hours
3. Good customer service is sending parts immediately and not waiting so you receive parts 7 days later.
4. Good customer service is walking through the adjustment or set-up change on the phone.
ON ALL THESE POINTS - HORNADY CUTOMER SERVICE HAS FAILED. I will never buy another Hornady product for any reason including free bullet offers that are not free....
