Hornady die issue

Yesterday I bought a Hornady die set at a gunshow and after I got home I see that the spindle is bent some such that the expander & decapper pin are not centered. It is not grossly bent, but noticeable. Will Hornady send me a new zip spindle?
The blood runs free, the rain turns red, give me the wine, you keep the bread.

No big deal, remove it and straighten it. If it's not really bad then you can just run it into a case and it will straighten itself. If that doesn't do it then order a new one from Hornady.

If you call Hornady they will probably send you two of them like they did for me, no charge.
He may look dumb, but that's just a disguise.
