Problem with decapping

I reload 45ACP with my LP1K and it started having some issues with decapping. About 20% of the primers are not removed at the first attempt, and some cases simply refuse to part with their spent primers no matter how many times I try. I did adjust the sizing die as instructed, but the problem remain...

Lee Carbide Factory Crimp die + Lee Reloader Single Stage?

I'm wondering if Lee CFCD can be used with single stage reloader press (the cheapest one). I have a Lee Pro1000 which is only 3 stage press and I need to crimp my loads. Seating the bullet and crimping doesn't really work well for me, it shaves quite a bit of lead from the bullet and sometimes cases...

I polished the die, but...

That's what I thought initially, but no, it is just enough to seat the bullet properly. I can try to adjust the die so that it seats a bit higher and see if that makes any difference.

Powder through expanding die issue

I just recently got my Pro 1000 and started reloading 45ACP. I was able to make the press work as expected, adjusted timing, dies, so far no primer feeding issues - however, one issue still remains. When the case goes into the second station and powder is dispensed, I have to apply substantial amoun...
