Bought a set of these for my 243 trying to save a little money.

I understand with metal in general you have to deal with surface rust and rust in general, but the inside of these things corroded pretty bad after one use.

I was resizing and got a case stuck in one, probably due to the resizer a not smooth and some roughness due to the rust. I tried cleaning, but another cartridge got stuck after I got the first one out and I couldnt get the second out. The pin doesnt come out like a lee, where you can tap the shell out.

Anyways, am I crazy, or are these things just not setup well?

Anyone else have a bad experience with these dies...or a good experience?

I will just pay a bit more money in the future and get better ones.

You need more lube!!! Hornady One Shot needs to be called "One Big [censored] shot" for this reason. Use more lube with a clean die, and you will be fine. Purchase a stuck case remover kit and a bullet puller, and everything can be undone.
