You often don't get what you pay for. The equipment from LEE is high quality and sturdy, just not quite as shiny waxed and polished as some of the other brands.
I've used Lee, Lyman, CH and Oehler since the late 40's and have yet to break anything major. I bought the Dillon 500 about 7 years ago and am very pleased with it and the company.
In MY opinion, you would be hard pressed to find any major brand reloading tool on the market today which is of truely inferior quality.
There...that should bring out some comments.
