how do you convert lee pro 1000 to 4 hole turent

I have a lee 3 hole progressive 1000 press, what would be needed to convert to a 4 hole using the taper die? Would a guy need to change the whole shell plate carrier for 4 or can he just use a seperate turrent and go back to taper the round? Any help would be greatly apreciated.

Can't be done. Get an other press or set up the crimp die alone and run the round thought again.

Thanks for the response, I was not sure so I thought that I might ask. Do you think that I could get a taper die and use it in a seperate turant in the last position on the press and do the same thing? This of course after the first three steps then go back and do the taper. Any advise would be helpful thanks again.

Sure, you could also set it up in a single stage press and crimp there. Or get a 4 or 5 station progressive press. Check out Lee, Dillon, Hornady and RCBS.

For that very reason I just ordered a Lee Loadmaster. I will run it to begin with in a "turret" fashion but once I am up to speed and have a firm grasp of the the whole process I can increase my production.
