Anyone else replace a Delrin powder die sleeve?

Recommended Posts

I'm leaking powder and while I'm not sure the sleeve is at fault there is obviously a great deal of slop in the powder measure travel.  Powder just started to leak after maybe 150K rounds.  Not a big deal and I can pull the sleeve from a second unit so I don't have to recalibrate.  Doesn't seem unreasonable but things went from essentially no leakage to a great deal running with my Mark VII.  I don't see any powder on top of the powder bar FWIW.

UPDATE:  disassembled the powder die assembly.  The body has an actual crack.  No doubt running an autodrive for well over 100K rounds can cause something like this.
