There is a RCBS Rep posting on TFL now. I asked about auto indexing for the Pro 2000 and this is the reply I got. I thought a lot of you would find this interesting.

Pro 2000 Auto Indexing

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HI there, Auto Indexing for the Pro 2000 will be available this year. It will be shown at the Shot Show and should be available for sale shortly after. The Press will still be available as a manual index or you can chose the auto index version. All owners of Pro 2000 can update to auto index. The full list price for the conversion is $99.95. You will find this less through companies where you purchase your reloading products. Hope this helps and have a great weekend. Will be back on Monday

Gander Mt. was out.

Was in the local Gander Mt. store a couple of weeks ago and noticed that they did not have any Pro 2000's. Maybe they didn't restock them as they're waiting for the newer version. Might have to trade a couple firearms I don't use in on one when they're on the shelves. Thanks for the info.

I think that's great news from a great manufacturer of reloading products. I use a Dillon 650, but have done some loading on a 2000. I do prefer auto-indexing, and I don't like the strip primers.

I just saw the auto index upgrade on MidwayUSA today for around $79. Somebody had a link posted on another forum.

ok. I'm sure this is a stupid question...

but what is auto-indexing? I ask because I'm just now collecting the equipment to start reloading (have an RCBS Pro 2000 :D) but I have no idea what auto-indexing is :)

Melody, with the current Pro 2000 you have to manually turn the shell plate each time you pull the handle. With auto indexing every time you pull the handle, the shell plate moves.

This means that every time you pull the handle to drop the powder the shell plates moves one position. It keeps you from dropping a double charge.

Hope this makes sense.
