I saw an advertisement the other day for the Lee Pro 1000. From what I could tell it comes with everything needed to start loading immediately, including carbide dies. I already have a RCBS single stage and all the dies, scales, powder throwers, calipers etc. that I would need to load with the progressive.I would keep these set up for my rifle and revolver hunting loads. The Lee would be used solely to turn out large quanties of .40 S&W ammo. My question is this, for the price of $129.00 with no tax or shipping is it possible to get a working and reliable machine? Or is the old saying "you get what you pay for" hold true here? I would appreciate comments and suggestions from people with knowledge of Lee or different manufacturers of progressive loaders. Thanks in advance and good shootin' to ya'. dgang

I use the Pro1000 and the turret. Very pleased with both. Have no problems at all with Lee equipment. Have loaded about 10 - 15K rounds between the two with no more than minor irritations. As long as you are observant and mildly mechanical you will have no problem.
