9mm Dillon die carbide ring/insert

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had the carbide ring/insert pull out of the die and remain around the case? ( Will admit that the press and dies are thirty years old.)  I pressed the insert back into the die, but two rounds later it happened again.  According to Dillon, the dies are not in stock and nothing on when they will be.  Found a Lyman 9mm die locally, not carbide but seems to work well.

I've had it happen.  Contact Dillon.  They sent me a new die, and wanted the old one back. 9mm as well. 

They can't send him out a new one if they don't have any in stock.

I think I'd try the loc-tite. 

clean the ring and the die then with acetone wipe it clean.

loc-tite is best with a snug type fit at the tightest. 

if the ring can be set by hand after the cleaning you are good to go.

otherwise heat die up to 140f and have the ring a cold as your freezer can get it...

glue and assemble...

Dillon requested that I return the die and they are going to recrimp.  Will see how that works out.

Should be doable. Counterbore the carbide ring's hole a slight amount, then crimp the excess over the seated ring and you should be good to go. If they don't let it sit around, it should be almost as fast turn around as sending out a new one.
