I was leery of One Shot when it first came out and heard a few stories about stuck cases, but the buddy that helped me learn the trade, took to it right away and he wasn't much for "new" stuff.
He was of the opinion that most guys having problems, weren't following the directions on the can? I've been using it for some time and have never had a problem.
I could never see much point in spending hundreds of dollars for the most expensive presses, just to load a few boxes of ammo per year, when the Lee kit will do fine for the casual reloader?
All the press does, is mechanically facillitate the functions of the dies. Good dies, proper procedures and no corner-cutting, should produce good ammo, regardless of the brand of the press.
I've known quite a few reloaders over the past 40 years and none ever wore out a press, regardless of the brand. Two of them ran off well over a few thousand rounds per year, every year. One on a pair of Rock Chuckers, the other with one RC and a Bonanza Co-Ax.
My first press was the original RCBS Reloader Special, still works fine. Probably cost me around $35-40, new. I think RCBS is now up to an RS-5?
Way I see it, if someone wants to get into reloading and doesn't want to spend lots of money, buy a Lee kit and learn the trade. If the day comes when that person really "gets into it", they can always just let the Lee press set up to perform one function (like decapping/sizing) and use a "better" press for the rest of the functions?
Literally thousands can be spent on loading equipment, if one truly gets the "illness"? And it can be contagious.
