I started out with lots of Hornady stuff like LnL AP press, LnL Case Prep Center, book, etc..
I tried using Hornady's One Shot and I almost gave up on reloading because I kept getting stuck cases.
After that, I got rid of my One Shot spray, the lube pad and the Hornady dies. I still have the book, but rarely refer to it.
Now, I still use the LnL press and the LnL case prep center but with Imperial Sizing Wax and Redding dies. I am a very happy reloader turning out high accuracy .308 ammo. If I had to do it over again, the only Hornady product I would buy is the press and case prep center. The rest is crap as far as I'm concerned.
Experience is a very bad teacher because it first gives you the test and then teaches you the lesson.
