Identification of stamped powder tube and locator pins

I've not used my 450 or 550B for over 23 years and in the interim some of the parts have become separated and their respective boxes misplaced. I'm unable to locate a chart providing the case family which these components fit and ask for your assistance in determining this information. Below are the items and the number stamped upon the piece(s):

Locator pins - "1" and "3"

Drop tube - "C"

I believe "C" may belong to a .30 Carbine set as it sits with Shell plate #8 and Locator pins #8.

Thank you for your assistance with this.

I decided to more deeply dig into the owners manual archives for the aforementioned machines and found the chart for which I was looking. I apologize for needlessly adding an unnecessary post. For anyone else in search of this information it can be found in the "Caliber Conversion" section of your respective owners manual.

Look like "C" is for 30 carbine from my ragged old catalog.

Good evening. You are correct about the Carbine. Additionally, you can find the chart online by Googling "Dillon Caliber Conversion Chart".

Best,
