You might want to check with Eric Harvey at Dillon Precision....
If I'm not mistaken THERE IS "NO LIFETIME WARRANTY ON A DILLON 1050. I believe they DIS-CONTINUED that because so many guys were using them as a COMMERCIAL LOADER & Dillon was losing money by replacing the broken parts, so they quit doing it. I just called in a couple of months ago for some LITTLE PARTS AND THEY "CHARGED ME FOR THEM". If you call ERIC, you can tell him I suggested that you call. We have been "PHONE FRIENDS FOR ABOUT 20 YEARS NOW, I THINK. IF YOU DON'T MIND, IF YOU CALL PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FIND OUT, MAYBE THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE CHARGED ME FOR THE PARTS.
