C-H Custom Die Parts

Greeting all,

I recently made a trade with a guy for a xp100r chambered in .250 Sav. AI. Included in the trade were a set of C-H 4-D Custom dies, a neck set. Unfortunately he included a .204 diameter neck sizer insert. I obviously need a .257.

I have been told that C-H is out of business and judging by my search results, that is correct. Does anyone know where I can find replacement parts? Sure would suck to have to buy new custom dies!

Thanks,

Ryan

If you need the expander button, The resizing stem and expander button complete or a sizing insert. I would start by contacting Hornady by phone. If my memory serves me right Hornady bought out C-H and continued producing reloading equipment under the Hornady name. Good Luck in finding your part.

CH-4D is still in business. Google them and give them a call. Warning, the owner has no personality or sense of humor at all. But they ARE still in business. Let me know how much the bushings are...I need one for my antique CH .300 Ackley dies.

See my post above... I'm pretty sure Hornady did not buy CH, because I've talked to the owner of CH-4D myself. He told me that "CH Tool & Die" was bought-out in the 1950's and changed their name to CH-4D.

Re: C-H Custom Die Parts

I did eventually find their website and gave them a call. I paid $8 and some change for a .257 expander and a four pack of primer decappers. Hornday does not own them. I must have heard a roomer.

Thanks for the help!
