Great Press For The Money
By Wayne L.

Well, after a couple hours of putzing around getting things set up properly, I was able to run a couple hundred .45 Long Colt rounds through the press. Other than user induced hiccups (primer feed not full enough to gravity feed the primers and a bad bullet seating on one round), the Pro 1000 ran flawlessly. When I ordered my press from Graf's, I made a mistake in ordering other dies and accessories. Graf's customer service people were a great help, got the right parts ordered and made a quick and simple job of returning the wrong parts I had ordered. Super pleased with Graf and Sons.
Exercise in frustration!

This press has gotten mixed reviews elsewhere. There were enough positives that I decided to give it a try, since this is the only progressive press in my budget.
Well, every common complaint from other people has happened to me. I spent a couple hours getting it tuned and ready to go for my first full run of ammo. I had already loaded 15 rounds getting the dies, powder measure, and primer feeder setup. All were running smoothly.
Then I started my run. First round, the chain on the powder measure snapped! I had already run a number of cases through - the aforementioned 15 test rounds and a number of others to make sure the measure was throwing the right charge.
I replaced the chain and started again. The next round failed to have a primer seated and the press jammed up. Turns out a primer flipped in the feeder trough. I had to remove all the primers and unjam the press.
Got that straightened out and started again. Three cases later and... Snap! There went the chain again. I removed the primers, emptied the powder measure and walked away. Forty five minutes into my first real run and I had 3 primed cases to show for it.
I am debating whether to try again another day, or just return the press. I've always had good luck with Lee products, but not this one. I gave it two stars because I think it's a nice product if it would work. There are plenty of people that seem to get theirs to work, but not me.
