I own a Dillon because of the reliability customer sevice and support. Lee is a bit of a maverick in his ideology about reloading after reading his manual Ifeel he is a bit touched. I will say that he does make reloading affordable, I own 5 sets of lee dies because of price and they come standard with a factory crimp die. they are 223, 7.62x39, 45/70 gummint, 30-06 for the Garand, 308 for the M1A1 and 30/30 they all are just fine for what I need them for. I did buy RCBS short base dies for the 7.62x39 because the rounds would stick in my AK. I looked at the lee presses before I bought my Dillon550B and thought they were poorly assembled, I cant say that I ever used one. Every time I have needed support for my Dillon it has been there, their monthly magazine aint bad either. :usa:
I had a Lee 1000. I had to take it apart every 150 rounds or so to un-jam something and re-set the timing. I finally bought a Dillon 550B. The Dillon is more expensive, but well worth the money. My Dillon is 10 years old and I have never had a problem with it. Dillon has a lifetime, no BS warranty on all of their stuff.
I do like and use most of Lee products, just not their reloading presses.
