It only decaps, just about any die will do. I use a RCBS, but a nail & hammer works.

Agreed, just don't mess up the flash hole.
Just about any brand of dies can have a broken pin if everything isn't bolted down tightly...
For my money Redding makes the best dies, with Lyman and RCBS not far behind. For a Dillon press the Dillon dies are the ones to have.

The Lee Universal is good to go. I have used one for many years and rounds. Works for steel case and brass case, cost effective and the pin can easily be replaced if broken. No one brand of dies is without issues, some are just better than others. I prefer used, in like new condition and inexpensive so color is not a preference of the box, neither is the material of the box. It is about what works and cost.
On the inside looking out, but not to the west, it's the PRK and its minions!
I'm using a RCBS universal decapping die. With the exception of snapping a few pins, I've decapped over 50,000 rounds. The snapped pins were because of off center primer holes. I'm well satisfied.
I really like my Dillion decapper.

Late to the show, but my Lee Universal Depriming and Decapping Die has served me well for 5.56/.223 and all pistol brass.
Replacement pin in case it breaks (BTDT)...

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
Send Lee a photo of the broken pin and they will send you a new one.
None of their pistol dies incorporate an expander with the decapping pin so any of them will work as a spare until the new one gets to your door.
The Lee Decapping die is what I use. It works great and is inexpensive. I prefer to decap before cleaning my brass.
Another vote for lee. I have several and never a failure. I think they will repair/replace free, if it does break, you may want to check on that.
I use the lee universal decaping die for 223 556 and 308 with no problem but some times have bent pin when doing 357 sig speers cases with small flash hole
