Might be the first person to ever....

Love the Lee Pro 1000. Just got done doing my 2nd batch on the lee pro 1000 and the thing works flawlessly!! Powder charge is great, primers seat great, crimp is great. I have only done about 300 rounds so far but zero problems so far

Cool! I have good luck loading with my 2 Pro 1000 presses, except I hand prime before hand. Especially with my .45acp press were it is easy to encounter a small primer case....

Sounds like an argument in favor of inspecting all of your cases before you start loading.

I love mine, I have had it since 1987, and it has loaded literally thousands of rounds. May not be the "best", but I like it. However, I do get tired of defending it from all the ijits who can't figure out how to work one (read the manual!!), so I just smile and shut up.

Lets see, it produces quality ammo, suits your need for speed, calibers and fits your budget.

Sounds like a winner to me.

I don't have one, but I would guess there are many, many folks using pro 1000s out there turning out thousands of rounds of ammo every year with no real issues.

They don't even know that press is junk!

Kind of why I started this thread, every one puts them down so bad and you never hear good things about them so I thought I would say good things for them.

as long as you keep an eye on things like you should with any press it just runs like a champ.( the Lee press I mean )we have ours set up for 3 cals right now but will add another soon after my boy gets back from fighting the war again.

we love ours if this helps

my dad has an older Dillion and I hate it with a passion.it has to many things to remember to do.I'd bet my Lee will put out more ammo than my dads Dillion.
