The vast majority of my (old) equipment is RCBS. Works for me too

Hornady has also. They sent me a free new die as the one I bought used was a style they no longer make even after I told them I got it used off e-bay.
Dillon gave me a bit of lip on a decap pin that broke due to the new(from them direct) 650 was adjusted wrong. I asked for 2 and finally they said they would send only one. But they did send it.
NOW lee is another story. They have asked for the old part to be sent back which would cost as much as just buying a new one at the gun shop. They insisted on a reciept for items and they do not lifetime warr much of their stuff. Several reasons I suggest people not buy their products.

I have had RCBS components for 35 years and always had good quality items.
My FIL loaned me a set of RCBS dies for the 300 wby he will never reload for again, and I had problems with the ammo made with them. He is good friends with the Huntington Manager and knows Buzz, so we drove up on a Friday and showed them the dies. While we looked at Huntington's museum and used gun inventory a worker took the dies across the street to RCBS, he came back with a new set of dies and 3 cases, one was mine. They determined the old 2 step process of making the dies did produce dies that could be misaligned, that set was one of them. The new dies are all CNC so no misalignment could happen. The ammo produced was very good ( low runout) and shot better in my 300 wby.
Dillon is also top notch, but I haven't dealt with them for 10 years or so.

Myself and 2 friends stopped in to see him in the 80s and get to take a tour of RCBS and meet Jay Postman @ RCBS Had a great time
If you get the chance ask him about his hunting prairie dogs some time and what he would take but then it was his dad that help start reloading in the first place
Here is a link to his store hard to find brass etc

I remember the tour I took of the plant when I was in high school. In fact I bought my first RockChucker press after the tour.
Was that your first RockChucker or THE first Rockchucker way back then?
