I like the Lee stuff
Yeah, you may want to upgrade a few things but overall, I find Lee to be one of the best equipment for the money. Period.
I too wasnt really happy with some of the stuff but after using it, I really like it. Just have to get use to it I suppose. Its not cheap, just inexpensive!
My last setup was RCBS. Everything on my bench was RCBS. I prefer the Lee over it. As far as the powder throw and scale, I find them to be the most accurate I've used. Maybe it does take more tinkering to get them exact but when you get them dialed in, they beat just about everything out there.
