Call Hornady, they might still have some leftover (or suitable) parts before the purchase. Also, I read somewhere (but I cannot recall) that RCBS pins work. Will share the link as soon as I ran into again.

Good luck!

ADDED:

Not the same link I was referring to and it's a 2009 thread but check #3 and 5 >>> http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=370077

Don't know as RCBS dies would be an "up grade" but the decap rod would be straight. At least until you left it screwed down too far again.

Suggest you get a Lee Universal decap die and a Lyman .243 "M" expander die to use along with your present sizer. On average, you'll get straighter expanded case necks that way.

Die designs for such trivia aren't fixed in stone, what was true last year may not be true next year.
