I have used RCBS reloading equipment for the last 23 years with out any issues.
I haven't tried the Hornady equipment , but with the good experience I have had with RCBS, I doubt I would switch brands at this point. While decaping some crimped 5.56 brass I wasn't paying attention and on the up stroke ran the primer seater up into a crimped pocket where it stuck.

As BB said, they are both good, and I'm sure you already know that you can use dies from one to the other. Most of my stuff is RCBS, although I like handgun dies from Lyman and rifle dies from Redding and bits and pieces from lots of other companies. I had a bullet seater turn into a bullet puller on DCM 308 match bullets. I had a hand primmer break...after 20-30 years or so..they tried to send me a part for free; whole tool has changed so the new part wouldn't work but their heart was in the right place.Pacific developed the "C" press as we know it today as well. I am not as old as some on this forum, but I've been reloading most of my life and have used equipment made by a vast array of manufacturers.I've no experience with Hornady's most recent additions and I understand their Lock n Load is well made, but their initial dies and equipment manufactured under their name was not of the best quality."I got started long before reloading gear was a gleam in Hornady's eye." Interesting, Hornady bought Pacific...Pacific dates way back to the 30's: the Pacific Perfection press was an early product.
