    I foolishly broke my decapping pin on my rcbs .45 die. I'm fairly new to reloading and I was wondering which replacement pin to get. I know I'll need a large pin but I saw a pack that had "headed" pins. I was wondering what the difference is between the headed and normal.

    Use whichever came out of the die. Pins are either straight cylinders, or have a "head"on one end to keep them in place, depending on the design of the die.

    You'll break more, so get a pack of them.

    I wasn't home to check, but thank you. I bought the wrong kind but, might as well take your advice and stock up.
