    In a pinch(one actually has lasted over five years now) you can use a finishing or panel nail until you get replacements. Just make sure the head fits the flat. I have one die that has a recess the head sits in and it takes a different nail than the other one.

    The Lee decapper pin presses in. All of my Lee decapping/sizing pins came with a lifetime warranty. They are several years old though so things may have changed.

    Ah, JC, you're very astute but no matter what you're addressing I was posting to the OP.

    He said: "I bought a set of Lee Pacesetter .223 dies today and just sat down to resize some cases. I noticed that the decapping pin was loose and falls out very easily. My .308 die is not like this. Is this normal or should I return the die set?"

    The instant glue will work better than a hammer. IMHO.

    The problem is the statement

    From your post #24, No it will not distort the expanded necks by staking the pin in place as the expanding plug is further up the shank of the rod that also holds the pin. Glue it in if you wish, may be better, I do not know for certain. I believe in a mechanical fix for this problem, JMHO.
