Now the down side to the Lee is no warranty on everything, and they tend to to take a lot more fiddling to get running smoothly.
Sort of an economy car versus a luxury car. They both get you there, but the expensive one makes for a nicer trip.
As usual, we've got someone who doesn't know what they're talking about making statements. So, to correct this, here's this from Lee:Guarantee and Repair policy
Posted by on 01 November 2011 11:38 AM
Lee reloading products are unconditionally guaranteed not to wear out or break from normal use for two full years or they will be repaired or replaced at no charge if returned to the factory.
Our lifetime conditional guarantee states that any Lee product of current manufacture, regardless of age or condition, will be reconditioned to new including a new guarantee, if returned to the factory with payment equal to half the current retail price.
Another option is to send the product of any age back to the factory for repair. Labor is free and you are charged only for any parts that are necessary to get your product functioning properly.
Our address is:
Lee Precision, Inc.
4275 Highway "U"
Hartford, WI 53027
(262) 673-3075 http://leeprecision.net/support/index.p ... air-policy
Also, speaking as someone who has both Lee and Dillon and has for many years, there's essentially no difference in the learning curve about making either one run properly. Further, the failure modes are virtually identical as is the amount of time required to get them up and running properly.
If anyone tells you differently, run, don't walk, away from them.
