Count me as a fan of their dies, and the LNL AP.
I don't reload pistol caliber, but I've got their dies (as well as RCBS) and not had any issues.
Stuck case isn't a Hornady problem, it's a lube problem. I've used One-Shot exclusively for the three years (and 9,000 centerfire rounds) and if I run into a case that feels "stubborn" I stop...it always means I didn't get enough lube into the case necks. I re-spray the rack, being sure to angle the can and get enough into the necks...and they glide right into the die.
