Re: Rockchucker to Redding T-7.Can you use rcbs dies in a redding t-7?

Before you put that all back together, if you haven't already.. how long is that spring, and roughly what diameter? I may even have something like that laying around the shop* And would that ball be a 5/16" (or is it smaller??) Can possibly find an old bearing someplace in the junk pile that I could steal a ball from (if I knew the size!) ...I should maybe ask one more favor of you to pass those few measurments yet, if you could* ?

    Spring compressed to coil bind length is .475"
    Spring Diameter is .290"
    Spring wire diameter is .040"
    Spring has 12 coils

    Ball diameter is .313"

    Even if you cant find what you are looking for in your shop, Redding has excellent customer service. I have called them a few times and they were more than helpful and sent me the parts that I needed.
