Primer Magazine Orifice(blue)- part 14024

Is there a solution/ replacement part that can be used to extend the life of this small part?

If this part is being quickly damaged, then likely the primer cup & punch aren't fully seated into the primer slide, or else the set screw that aligns the primer cup under the magazine tip is slightly out of adjustment.
Out of round primers will shorten the life of this as well. The reason this tip is flexible plastic is so that in the event a primer hangs up in this tip, the tip won't crush, which could cause the primer to ignite.
Check out some of the SDB cleaning and lubing videos for maintenance of the primer feed system.

I have searched the web and see mention that people with this same issue are using a brass orifice from larger Dillon presses. Is this really possible?
