Whats big blue? Dillon Prec.?
I have an RCBS press my grandfather bought in the late 60's, it still functions great. I have a mix of RCBS and Lee dies and don't have any real negative things to say about either. I'm not sold on the whole Dillon thing, it seems as though most of the people that buy Dillon are maybe a bit too fanatical about it. Even inexpensive Lee equipment should last a lifetime if cared for.
