Also remember that a good rule of the thumb is that whatever error you see will usually come out double that in the end(or close to double). You maybe scared to death with what you find out. It took me forever to prove this out on one of my brother's presses that he was so dearly in love with. I rebuilt it for him, and he's even more dearly in love with it<g>! His dies alone were moving well over three thousandths under heavy pressure. His compound error came out close to .012", and how he ever got a good case I'll never understand. But he sized a lot of really long strait walled cases with it (like 50-110's)

When I called them I was just gonna let them know of the issue, and not for them to send me a new one, but they insisted on sending a new one anyway. LOL
My all time favorite deal like that is with a Lo-Wall I've had for eons (actually lost it in the back row of the safe). I ordered in a new set of gloss bases and rings from Leupold, and they came with the wrong screws. Called them up and they sent me another set that were still not right. A third call got me some screws that were about a half inch too long. Kinda pissed me off as I hate cutting off real small screws. So I sat the rifle back in the safe till I had the time to make new screws. Later I decided to call Burris to see if they had bases in stock. The lady I talked was very cordial and said that they didn't make them anymore, but she'd go ahead and check the wharehouse for me. They had one set that was uninventoried, and she just gave them to me! I insisted on paying her for them, and she wouldn't have it!! I'd have gladly payed her the $40 for them without the slightest whimper

Then the rebate and recipt I sent in over 5 months ago that I still have not recived. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Remember make copies of your recipts!!!

While you are waiting for an answer, I'll add that I love my Chargemaster and it has worked flawlessly for me for 4 years. I could not imagine going back to a balance beam for loading on a regular basis. If mine ever breaks, it will be quickly replaced by another.

5 years running now. Lots of rounds loaded and not one single problem. It's funny to look back now and think about me loading with a balance beam scale.
