I've used a lot of Lee equipment over the years and found that most of it works if you follow directions (admittedly Lee's instructions are sometimes extremely terse) and do not try to do things with it that it was not designed to do. Using Lee tools sometimes requires a little thought and practicality on the part of the used and they are not idiot proofed.

I don't use Lee for loading rifle match ammo, but I use it for shotshells, rifle plinking rounds and handgun ammo. If I have one gripe about their dies, I would say that you really have to keep after them to prevent them rusting. Otherwise I see no advantage in buying more expensive general purpose dies, many of which are built on Lee patents, and are not more closely spec'd for tolerances.
