No, it's hard to figure sometimes.  A lot of it depends on the individual RE
parent and the combination of parents.  Some are great producers of REs,
some aren't.  A cross this past year of Bountiful Harvest x Colorwatch
produced rebloom in 93% of the offspring.  The recipricol cross only
produced 47%.  Some of our nicest stuff is RE x oncers but there are some
nice RE x RE crosses coming out of this year's seedling patch.  I think the
daubing from, or to, a RE by a oncer is a great way to introduce new colors
and better form to REs.
Just my personal observations.
