Midway USA has them for 32$.
I use mine for 5.56 which can take a little work getting the rod in the mouth of the case. And pistol cases. Easy to use and last forever (mine’s going on 30 years.).
As far as Federal brass, I have never had problems with Federal in 45 ACP, Colt and 44 special. Granted primers go in easy but I have never had a primer back out or lose its seal. Then again I don’t push reloads that hard.
I have Federal 44 special cases that have been reloaded so many times I wouldn’t want to guess.
I don’t know if date of manufacture makes any difference but mine were purchased in the 80’s as new loaded.
