Decapper off reloader

I built this simple decapper for my drill press while waiting for my dillion dies to come so I could at least process my brass in a wet tumbler.   The spent primers fall through the hole in the table into a container. The diameter of the pusher rod is .062.

 

Any one see a problem with this set up?

 

I ordered a new Dillion 550 back in January and they told me the die sets were 10-12 weeks out.   I contacted them yesterday as the time has come due and they told me die sets are now backordered 24 weeks from the date of purchase. Very frustrating,  as I have assembled all my components and decapped and tumbled a few thousand casings.  20210309_101053.jpg.a6c60dc4aa054db639faaf6fb3f95f7b.jpg20210309_101034.jpg.31a33dfb6ce1c426c1fae4e733ae0ec0.jpg20210309_101106.jpg.51a2e732ddf66bdc2480d53144af4272.jpg

See if you can find a set of dies separately online. Then ask Dillon if you can change the order to no-dies (it’s a standard option). Doesn’t answer your main question but might save you some time...

Lee, Mighty Armory, FW Arms, all have pretty good decapping dies.  You might be able to buy a single stage out there and sell it when you get your 550.

 

A lee APP would probably be a good one for this purpose.
