I am getting very confused. I am very new to reloading metalic cartridges, (lots of 12 gauge). I have loaded about 700 rounds on my Father-in-laws single stage press and I have to say that it was not all that bad. I was able to reload about 100 rounds per hour (i did not think that was too bad for my first time). The only drawback is that his equipment is 150 miles away and do not get there very often. So I would like to get set up to reload at my place. I am looking for a VERY inexpencive way to get into it. I have seen the Lee Pro 1000 for $125 set up in .45ACP but have heard "do not buy Lee". What is wrong with them? I know what you will say "buy Dillon", my responce is give me the money and I will. So, what has your experience been with the Lee Pro 1000? Are they OK to get started? I am young and this will only have to last me until I get a little older and can afford a Dillon. I shoot an average of 100-200 rounds per week. I need advice!?!
