I have had very good luck with customer service at Lyman.
From your description of the problem it sounds like the o-rings on the H&I die are missing or damaged. You didn't say exactly where on the bottom the lube is squirting out, but if it is at the bottom of the lube reservoir it could also be a damaged or missing o-ring.
I had a bit of the same problem with my Lyman, and a telephone call to Lyman purchased a packet of o-rings at a reasonable price. Once I re-installed the large o-ring at the bottom of the reservoir I realized that I had allowed the mounting bolts for the lube-sizer to get a bit loose. That allowed a bit of movement at the bottom and lube squirted out. I put in the new o-ring, tightened the lube sizer tight onto the smooth board that is mounted on and I haven't had a problem since.
The o-ring on the H&I die has to be treated gently when changing dies. Otherwise it can be damaged or not seat properly.
