Default Simi Valley RCBS Reloader Parts?

I'll be in the Simi Valley area of Southern California tomorrow and am in need of some parts for my reloading dies, especially a .223 decapper/expander. Darn thing broke after only 10 years! Does anybody know of shops in the area that stocks a good supply of these kind of things?

Not sure of a store, but doesn't RCBS have a lifetime warranty? If they are like the other reloading companies, they will send you a free one.

My experience with parts is hit and miss at the store. Call RCBS. They have great customer service.

What part broke, the large stalk, or the pin?

The part that failed was the expander piece that screws onto the shaft and secures the pin. It was actually operator error. The cap was not screwed down tightly and the force of neck expanding pulled it off the shaft along with 3-4 threads, so not readily repairable. I've got taps and dies and may resort to a repair if I can't get a replacement.

I didn't realize RCBS had a lifetime warranty, I'll call them and see if it extends to operator error! Worst case maybe they will send me a new one if I offer to pay for it. It's irritating to be unable to reload because of an $8 part. In any case if I can find one today in a store I'll pick one up and be done with it. If anybody has any store recommendations I'd appreciate it.

I am in the Simi area. I have a brand new in the box P/N 11129 Full Length Sizer Die that uses a #10 Shell Holder RCBS that you could have today. If that works for you, what have you to trade? Thanks

Sorry for the delay, I've been out of down. That part number is for the entire sizing/decapping die. I have the die, just need the internal threaded rod with the decapping pin chuck on the end. I should have it in a few eeeks from either Midway or RDBS, I have an order in to both. Thanks for the offer tho.
