Locking Rings for Dies

3344 Views 13 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  unclenick
I just recently bought a new set of dies from RCBS and the locking ring is not the same size as it use to be. I am using them in an old Bonanza (Forester) press. The locking ring on the new dies is only about 1/4" thick. The rings I need are at least 5/16". There is just so much play in them it is impossible to get the same results in every case.

Are there new rings available anymore for the older equipment???

I have been replacing lock rings on RCBS (and other) dies for years with the Lee rings. The rubber "O" rings provide enough friction to keep the dies properly adjusted and they are very easy to re-adjust if, for example, you need a different bullet depth set-up.
