I am not sure, but I do process .223/5.56 2x, so maybe 1/3 more (maybe 40,000-53,333 cranked through this) have been cranked through the press than completely reloaded, as I do sizing and decapping exclusively in my brass-prep.

Dillon is coming though, again, and I already have tracking for replacements, even if I got some ordered on the side, as I didn't think they would ship so quickly...
