i have 2 lyman 450s bought used & updated the linkage sys.
as far as dies & top punches on the rcbs & lyman are interchangeable & it really comes down to which color ya like !!
i feel the new rcbs LAMII has more bearing surface for the ram though.
as far as a heater people heat em all kinds of ways irons , heat guns, heat strips & i use a heat lamp but the heater is nice to have !!
keep watchin the wires & auctions & most of the time ya can run across a good 1 at less than new $$
Midway has a lyman castin sale on this month also sizer with heater $134.99
