    Probably so... I never had any but moderate luck straightening the bent rod and simply procured another from local sources at first opportunity. The pins are hooped and unworkable after. I have a dozen to spare...

    As a general point, the decapping spindles can often be fettled back into shape. Pins? Not so much. Check out the Lee decapping system; the "spindle" is not threaded, but smooth and is retained by a top nut assembly that is essentially a "collet". If you try to deprime a Berdan case, the pin is simply forced back up in the collet and not mangled. (Works on all but the most insanely-crimped boxer cases).

    And check out Lyman's .22 and .30 cal Tungsten Carbide decapper / expander ball kits; they come with a couple of adapter plugs so they can be used in a wide variety of dies. These seriously reduce "drag' as the ball exits the case neck. Less drag: less stretch and less noise.

    On a different tack: I destroyed both a CH and an RCBS primer-pocket decrimper tool, prepping "surplus" brass. Then I coughed up for Mr. Dillon's masterpiece and have never looked back. Only thing I did was to run a small, Tungsten-Carbide centre drill bit into the end of the "large" pocket swager, so that I could do the pockets of the very same Berdan cases that mangle the decapping pins of the unwary.
    Thanks, Bruce. I glommed one of those Lee decapping dies right after I scrunched the RCBS decapping spindle. RCBS sent me two replacement spindles and a mess of pins under warranty.

    I have an RCBS swagging tool, but mean to look into the Dillon.

    I have an RCBS swager and still use the Dillon exclusively. It does a marvelous job on anything...

    I did the same thing getting HXP mixed up with my RP, sadly it was a Forester sizer. No sympathy, pay the rent.

    Of course that's the only HXP I have found in RP in 4 years, and that was the fist time I used the new Forster sizer.

    You got to love RCBS. I broke a part on a hand primer and they sent me almost an entirely new one.

    RCBS will even replace a worn out die. They still go by the service of taking care of the customer
