Anybody replaced the lock rings on their lee dies with something else and have the old lock rings sitting around? Let me know. I need to pick up like 7 of them.

If I can't find these I am open to buying other brand lock rings.

IMHO: If you cant find the Lee rings. Hornady Split Steel Lock Rings are the way to go.

Good luck.

My lee rings don't stay put, even when I try to loosen them by the nut only. I want 7 more so I can double them up, and then I know they will hold.

Well, you can buy them from Lee. www.leeprecision.com. Just look for one of their die sets and next to the number it will say "serv.parts" Click on that and you will get a parts list. The lock rings are $1.00 each and the O-rings are $0.50 each.

Only problem is they add $4 processing fee, then shipping. $1 rings just turned into $2 rings. Worst case I'll throw them into my next big Graf's order

Yeah. They're new dies. It's just, I work in batches of 50 on my hand press. Every time I start the next batch it seems like the dies are all out of wack again.
