    Just happens occasionally. Maybe not quite lined up right with flash hole & oops, pin bust! Easy to get hold of spare usually & not expensive. You can probably use a pin from another de-cap/size die meantime?

    Happens just the same with Redding.
    Their de-cap rods break just as easily.

    Please can you not post absolutely all your threads in Articles and Writeups. This clearly belongs in Ammunition/Reloading where I am moving it now.

    I go decades without snapping a pin, then I buy a set of RCBS Small Based 30-06 dies. Snapped the pin on the first go-round. The dealer gave me a pouch of pins. Snapped a second pin 20 cases later. Dug through my chest of relics, pulled out a bag of 40 year old decapping pins, and have had no problem since. I think they have some bad suppliers at RCBS.~Muir

    Yep cheap costing cutting strikes again................................. When I mislaid my case deburring tool I went to buy a new one and the RCBS ones are now crap. really cheaply and poorly made. I refused to buy that bit of garbige. Lucky I found where mine had rolled too. It's an old one made for RCBS by Wilson. They even tried covering up the poor quality on the new one buy masking it with horrid black paint.

    Methinks they are outsourcing to China.

    The pin in the Lee universal decapping die i bought lasted all of 3 cases! First and last Lee equipment in my collection! You can't beat Forster or Redding IMHO.
