The only thing I have that I have found that are good is the Powder dippers!

    All of the above had to be replaced by RCBS or Dillon equipment which i found to be better made, did a better job (particularly the RCBS cowboy dies), were far more reliable and still going strong without any issues after thousands of rounds.

    Thatís not to say other manufacturers donít also produce naff products, I find the Lyman #55 Powder thrower as inconsistent as the Lee ones, in fact the only Powder thrower I have come across which is spot on every time is Dillonís.
    I really rate the Lee hand priming tool but you have to keep the wear cam in the handle greased with good moly grease or it breaks as you describe.
    "An infinite number of monkeys banging away at type writers for an infinite period of time will eventually reproduce Hamlet" Thanks to discussion forums we now know this to be untrue.
