Just priming

Postby rowe_s » Tue Jan 14, 2014 7:13 pm

If a pro 1000 were used just to prime already decapped cases with the primer pockets preped, not a single die installed.

How reliable of a priming tool would this make? cases would be inspected before loading on another press.

I want to build a dedicated priming press with case feed, just thought the Pro 1000 might be a good base to build from.

rowe,
It will work, I did tht exact thing with a 1000, but didn't like it because of the different feel than the LM. But, it did work fine, I also used it to decap 223 brass because of the ability to use the casefeeder and only three stations. If you know someone with one I would try it out first. You might like it just fine. JMO

I have a Lee Breech Lock Challenger that I use for all off press priming and depriming. Works well and dies are easy to change.

Thanks for the help fellows. I think I know of an old Pro 1000 still in the box. Going to call the guy tonight. If he doesn't have it anymore I'll get a new one.

I didn't suggest that Steve use a Challenger Press ML, I simply stated that that's what I use. You could stand to re-read a little yourself. :twisted:

The nice thing about a Pro 1000 is that you can feel the primers go into the case.

sparky, it wasn't pointed at you, but apparently you are guilty, get some OATMEAL and take your meds
