    Thanks for reading my post and commenting on it. Certainly NOT tongue-in-cheek... I've never seen a Pro 1000 listed separately without dies/powder-measure/shell-plate at Titan....

    The Lee Pro 1000s are sold/marketed/setup for one caliber, comes with everything needed to load that caliber, and even has a case feeder :wink: You don't even need a scale when using the included Auto Disc powder measure, but it is recommended for...

    Yea, I found these 1/4" steel plates locally($4 ea.), with a hole in each corner, bought one for each press because they all had different bolt patterns. I cut off one corner so the rear hole was the farthest away from the bench/press edge. I...

    Thanx for the recognition, I didn't think anyone read my posts... I only do pistol and simply put a de-primed case in the top washer, bring down the de-prime pin, find/push it thru the primer hole for alignment, and clamp the stacked wooden blocks...

    I suggest you take a look at the Pro 1000 too. Either way watch the setup vids here: https://leeprecision.com/help-videos.html :mrgreen: Edit: Commonly known by Pro 1000 owners is priming issues are related to the index adjustment, and is...

    Thanx :cry: Pics/vids @ that link are "old" design... Index pin is new, I have 2 RCBS older 5 stations, one with an index pin, one without and don't see any difference in operation. On the Pro 1000 most primer problems seem to be from an out of...

    I mix the OMS with NuFinish in a small prescription bottle, add it to the walnut media, and run it for a few minutes before adding the brass to my vibe tumblers. Hydrating the walnut media with odorless mineral spirits (OMS) cleans the primer...

    To me the Lee throws look to be designed to work well with the powder thru expander that's included in Lee die sets. Whereas the Hornady/RCBS are more of an adaption of measures designed many years ago into an "automatic" powder drop through what...

    I was introduced to the Lee drops when I bought a Pro1000 for 45acp. On both a Piggyback and Ammomaster Auto, I have replaced the RCBS powder drops with Lee Auto Disc/Auto Drum measures, and the RCBS drops are on a shelf gathering dust. Both...

    Something like this with enough 1ft square patio blocks added to the shelf to stabilize it. :razz: Really though, nothing beats attaching the back of the top to a wall for primer seating. :popcorn:
