    GMK & RCBS spares

    Hello chaps, anyone had and experiences with GMK & RCBS ??. My local gunroom ordered 2 new .243 competition decapping pins in APRIL 2013!!!!!!!!! from GMK, in October of 2013 GMK said they had missed ordering these from RCBS

    My local gunroom requested GMK add them promptly, & were told I would receive them 31st January 2014!!!!!!!!!, guess whats comimg next, local gunroom rang GMK on 7th February to be told that OH....RCBS MUST NOT DO THESE SPARE DECAPPING PINS ANYMORE!!!!


    Is there any point whatsoever in sticking with the same brand/manufacturer if you are unable to source spares within a reasonable time


    PS: anyone got an idea where I could source these items in a REASONABLE TIME FRAME

    GMK are only interested in selling new guns.
    Their bizarre lack of customer service is a joke.
    Email RCBS.

    20-250, thank you for that, I shall in due course, but I thought some of our colleagues on this site may be able to give me a better result than I have thus far

    I'm glad you mentioned that Muir as I was wondering how they differed also. Any RCBS stockist will normally have in stock spare decapping pins normally. If not why not try Reloading Solutions.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Muir, my inept way of not being specific, I should have said Decapping pins for my .243 competition dies

    Many thanks for that Leec6.5, my local gunroom informed that was what they trying to do, but as already stated, (albeit badly expressed by me) but to no avail

    My decapping pins are almost a redundancy these days as I use a Lee Universal Decapping die on all my brass before I clean them in the ultrasonic cleaner. Additionally, I decap a lot of military 308 brass that it crimped. The Lee die pops the primer right out without a bit of strain.~Muir
