Getting ready to order reloading outfit, HELP!

548 22
OK, I'm taking the plunge here. I'm getting ready to order a Lee Pro 1000 for .45ACP and 1000 bullets from Precision, since I like the idea of the moly coating for less $$$ than FMJ. What is the advantage of going with a 200RN grain over a 230RN grain bullet? Were talking about target practice/plinking here. No competetion, no defensive use. One of my .45's has the shorter barrel, so I was thinking about the 200 grain for less recoil. Your thoughts?? BTW, cannot afford to go with a Dillon 550, so it's going to be the Lee 1000.

Unfortunately, the Square deal is also out of my price range. I have a partial Lee 1000 a friend gave me from his reloading days years back. But it is missing too many parts, and is cheaper to buy another one from Midway for $121. I have figured out the mechanics of the Lee, and it doesn't seem to complicated to figure out. But then again, some of us have to learn the hard way.

OK, Maybe I don't have to learn the hard way. I did notice in the instructions that they warn against using other brands of primere than CCI and Winchester. Maybe that should clue me in to something? If I hold out a few more weeks I guess I could go with a Dillon 550, since that was my first thinking. Now who has the best price on the 550? Should I go with Dillon direct? I heard something about warranty problems if it was bought through a dealer instead of them. Someone listed a dealer in NC that had them for for less than $300 delivered, but I tried a search and could not find anyone.
