Lee universal shell holders. 60% or more of my brass wouldn't fit in the shell holders. NOT THE BRASS the shell holders were machined WRONG.

My brother has a lee classic cast press snapped in half while resizing new 222 rem brass.

Nothing i have ever owned lasted more than about 30 minutes of use. So to me that means they make an inferior product. That is over $50 of stuff with shipping that was worthless and didn't last. I called Lee and they would not make it right so therefor I tell people about my experience.

Use them if you like. I will not.

LEE makes CRAPPY Products.
You just wait til I tell my brother Lee.

Wait, you may be right. He can't even pour a beer correctly.

OK let me get this straight. It is ok for you to like Lee and say it is the best ever in reloding equipment and it is the be all end all in reloading equipment.

But I'm an asshat for saying I don't like it and I like RCBS and Dillon. How in the wide wide world of sports is that not the same?

TO the OP pull your head out of your ares then put your big girl panties on and deal with it.

Good lord.

This is awesome!

Next!

Tango, the Lee stuff I have is old. None of it newer than 20 years, but it is solid stuff. If you had those experiences, it is understandable you feel the way you do. I would too.

Hey now,I really can't see myself wearing pink panties,nor would I want to.

I agree there are some things that Lee makes that ain't that good,but most of the products that I have used over the years have worked fine,and until I wear it out or it breaks,I'll keep on using it.

I don't take your commits personal at all Tango,and I do enjoy reading your opinions that you write,and find them funny sometimes.

And I don't think your an asshat at all.
Oh,I also like Dillon,RCBS,Hornady,Redding,and do have several reloading tools,from most of them.

Easy everyone, EASY!

A lot of the time Tango is an asshat - but he is the asshat for the forum. He is the lightening rod and the mouthpiece & the person that will definitely step up and call a Spade that black card from the deck.

But.....

He is loyal to the forum and a lot of the time he is not afraid to say what a lot of people are thinking.

I know Brett behind the scenes and I bet some 50% of his signature line right now is to illicit a response out of you guys and drum up some activity around the forum.

The other 50% is his honest opinion, which he is never afraid to share, regardless of what anyone thinks.

So, let's just keep it civil. Cool?

I love my RCBS gear. Why? Because it has served me very well for 30+ years and is still going strong.

I love my Dillon machines. Why? Because they have worked well for me for as long as I have owned them (my RL-450B since the mid-80's and my RL-550 for about a year now). BTW, Dillon's warranty and service is fantastic!

I was disappointed with the Lee hand primer tool as I have broken the hand lever on two of them, and then I bought an RCBS hand primer. The RCBS primer tool seems to be bullet proof. I did buy a set of Lee dies for the Jap 6.5 Arisaka. They work fine. I bought Lee dies for the 6.5 Jap (my only non-RCBS dies) because they cost half what RCBS wanted!

I know more than a few people who have Lee equipment and they are perfectly happy with what they have. If they are happy with their reloading gear why would should anyone object to that?

I have Lyman,Lee and RCBS equipment all anywhere from 1 to 25 years old I'm still using my Lee hand primer tool I bought over 20 years ago. Only problems I've had with any of my Lee gear was my fault,I snapped off a decapping pin on a berdan primed case I missed and I finally wore out my Lee Lock Stud trimming cases with it. I've been bless that all my reloading equipment has held up and worked so well over the years.
