Re: Am I the only one??
I can honestly say I have NEVER, EVER had this problem with RCBS dies.
The reason is... I haven't bought a set of RCBS does in over 25 years.
The phrase, "Within spec", leaves a lot of wiggle room.
The +/- of SAAMI spec chambers is kinda large, and RCBS is making their dies at the long end of the range.
Also consider that ALL shell holders are standardized at 0.125" +/- 0.001".
This allows you to use a Redding shell holder with Lyman dies (why would you want to use Lyman dies [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] ), in a C-H or RCBS press. In other words, the nice man at RCBS LIED TO YOU!!
And it is because RCBS is now a shadow of the company they were in years past. Now, most products are outsourced - presses are made in China, dies and other parts are made by job shops around the country... RCBS is a group of offices and a warehouse for shipping. The customer service folks are no longer shooters, and they answer your questions from a printed F.A.Q. sheet.
The RCBS of today is living on the Reputation of a company that died many years ago.
If you want "customer service", get Redding, Foster or CH4D stuff. If you have a problem with your dies from ANY of these companies, you send the dies back, and fired cases, and even if your chamber is BAD, they will make the dies work with it.
