    I have used the RCBS and a personally modified Lee holder system (picture a 17 year old kid with a welder and an imagination lol)

    I like the RCBS, but admitadly I had to shim the trimmer to align it better with the shell holder. It is pretty fast to switch cases in... that's what I liked about it when I bought it.

    I would also look at either a Sinclair or a Forsters.
    I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".

    I used the RCBS for a long time and it worked fine. I use the Forster now and like it.

    If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives

    Wilson all the way.
    Well worth the extra cost.
    Very well made.
