Good looking bench you've got there.
You're in for it now. It's all downhill from here.

Well I headed to Orville yesterday to fish the outlet for Salmon and decided to run by RCBS. THey took a look at the dies and one nut was missing they replaced it for free. And the dies are brand neww never been used, The tech said they should be good to go. THe inside still had the original protective coating they apply. Stiff Neck We did buy the dies news just about 10 yrs ago to reload for my .223 contender. never shot it much nd never reloaded any round. SO I was not goign to throw away a perfectly good set of dies for one missing part. Also my guns are more like fords or dodge and I would slap some used tires on them LOL RObert
I'd start over with new dies. You don't know why the parts are missing, or how the dies were treated. Were they abused? Your quest is for great accuracy, yet you're willing to use questionable dies? Very small "issues" with an old used die could potentially screw up your chances of shooting small groups. Even a few thousanths of runout will hurt. To me, that sounds like putting used tires on your brand new Fararri. Besides, you don't even know if the dies were any good for the first owner. Not to mention you're messing with a questionable second hand piece of equipment to make bullets that could potentially blow your face off if something isn't right.I'd toss 'em and buy a brand new die set. But that's just me.
