Boy, this is going to start the "Ford versus Chevy" debate all over again, or as it's called on a gun board, Dillon versus Lee
I own and use a Pro 1000 with very little complaint. I have virtually no problems when loading rounds that use small pistol primers, but do have periodic jams with large pistol primers. Think I finally have that figured out. In any event, I paid $117 for it on sale at Midway a couple of years ago, and it was well worth it. I have no doubt that Dillon makes an excellent machine, but I just couldn't swing the price. For under $200 I wound up with a perfectly serviceable press, primers, powder, bullets, powder measure, etc. etc. I think it's a great way to start reloading on a progressive press for minimal cost.
