Thinking of getting one to speed up my reloading from the old balance beam measuring. I haven't been reloading for long, and I have limited time so trying to make the most of the time I have. Thanks!
Yes, I have the RCBS and the Hornady running side by side and the short of it...absolutely go with RCBS. I have already returned the Hornady once because it failed to operate properly. Even when operating properly the RCBS can throw 3 or 4 loads to one thrown by the Hornady. Sometimes the Hornady locks up and just won't operate. This is not just my opinion. I work with a group of scout snipers out of camp pendleton. We get together to do reloading and exchange shooting stories. All parties in our group who have tried to use the Hornady say hands down, "Go with the RCBS".
