Im happy with my lee press's and pistol dies. The only problem i had my turret press. I could not get the ratchets to last. Then the plastic clamp broke. I index by hand now. I checked my newer autodrum. It's starting to spread. I clamped it. At least it's throwing accurate charges. What is the indexing system on the 1000 made of ? I been thinking of going progressive too. The Hornady AP is what im leaning towards.
