getting divorced from Lee

I too am leaving my two Lee presses behind (Load master .223 & Pro 1K 9mm). See previous conversations in reloading forum. Dillon 650 on order.

I know what you guy's are saying about the Pro 1000.

But I've learned all the little tricks in 40 years of using one, you have to keep them clean & polish a few parts up. also keep an eye on the little plastic gears in the Shell carrier.

The main problem most guy's have is with the primer system, a little graphite in the primer slide & you should be good to go.

Also if you do a heavy session of reloading take apart the shell carrier & clean the heck out of it.

Lot's of YouTube Setup videos that can help you keep the little pro 100 working!

Is it as good as a Dillon? Nope not even close! But you can load a decent amount of good ammo on it. Just not nearly as fast a Dillon!

I've had my Dillon RL 550 B for over 20 years now. It's paid for itself many times over, and I'm sure the lack of frustration in dealing with some of the Lee quirks y'all have mentioned is probably worth a good bit, too.

I use a loadmaster for 9 and 45. I couldn't afford a 650 at the time so I got this. It can be frustrating at times however it works well enough. It's not in the same category as the Dillon in any case and if you can afford a 650 buy it. If not this press will get the job done.
