    After a reloading session where a set of LEE dies again failed to give quality ammo (45ACP) I "retired" them and ordered some RCBS dies.

    After the fiasco when I offered free Lee dies several months ago, I'll not make that mistake again. They went directly into the trash....Good riddance!

    Sorry all you LEE lovers but LEE stuff just doesn't make MY (!!) cut. It may make yours, and that is OK but no more LEE stuff for me. I'll continue to cull out the LEE stuff as it fails to perform.

    Now you are talking LD. I have yet to find bad products from RCBS. Knock on wood. LOL It's cold and damp here in Arkansas and a great day to stay inside and load for awhile.

    LD,

    Just out of curiousity, what failed on these? I've been replacing mine with green and the other red ones too. I'm not trashing them or giving them away but do prefer the quality and heft of the others.

    No reason to be sorry LD. Even those of us that like Lee know they aren't for everybody.

    That would have been cool. :D

    anyone giving away Lee dies? I'll be happy to take them off your hands.
    Any have a Lee "seat-and-feed" die in .45 or 9mm they don't want? How about a Lee FCD in .45?
    I'm still waiting for my first bad die from Lee, Hornady, or RCBS.
