I don't know of any really bad presses and even the best is more opinion than fact. I've used RCBS for years. Also used a C-H, Lee and Herters. All acomplished what I needed. I always suggest getting the Lee starter kit because ti's really cheap, does everything you need and everything is uphill from there. I even bought one for my son when he started. Goy a lot of flack over that but guess what, it worked and got him well started and I still have most of my own stuff minus some die sets!
The only press I ever had trouble with was A RCBS RSII. Never found out what was wrong with it but it wouldn't resize 308 cases completely. As a company, todays RCBS if nowhere near Fred Huntingtons RCBS! Not even close!
