    I just finished setting up my New/Old Lee Automator in .44 Mag. The Automator was sold as a Kit for the 2001 Challenger for only 2 years. I became interested in them when I realized nobody remember them at all!

    The kit basically turns any press into a piggy back Pro1000.

    BDS's curved ejector pin mod really works beautifully. No more jammed .44 mag shells.

    I've never seen one of these, and I like oddball stuff like this. That's just so nuts that it's cool.

    Evan, that was my thought exactly!
    What killed the idea was, you could purchase an entire Pro 1000 w/dies for about $30 less. The funny thing is that still holds true, it cost me a $180.00 to set this one up, less dies (I already had them)!

    Your link is incomplete... you apparently copied/pasted from a post you've made elsewhere, and the forum software there edited the link and added "..." in the shortened URL.

    FYI
