This informational exchange thread is for those that already reload or DECIDED TO RELOAD on the Lee Pro 1000 progressive press. It is similar to the sticky "What clever little things have you 'invented or discovered' that you can share?" thread but specific to the Pro 1000 (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=218188). Keeping the posts in the following format will help those looking for solutions to their Pro 1000 problems. Of course, feel free to post any "clever little things" you have done to better your reloading experience on your Pro 1000. If you are new to reloading, I recommend you first learn the basic reloading safety practices and principles. Many THR members will suggest you start on a single stage press - please check out the numerous THR single stage/reloading basics threads by using the search feature under the Handloading and Reloading category. If you are looking to bash, rip or attack the Pro 1000 press or make comparisons to other progressive presses, please respect the THR intent/spirit and withhold your negative comments (perhaps you may want to start a similar thread for your make/model of reloading press. Now, let's network and help out fellow Pro 1000 users!
