    No, I'm not trying to decide if I want one. I already have
    a Pro 1000 and am very happy with it, thank you. I'm just
    interested in adding the automatic bullet feeder to it and
    wonder if any of you folks might have a Pro 1000 with that
    gadget on it? First, how do you like it? Second, how much
    of a job is it to change calibers with it? I change calibers
    frequently, everything from .30 Carbine up to .45 ACP, and
    wouldn't want something that took me a half hour to swap parts
    for a caliber change. Third, roughly how many bullets can be
    held in the tubes? I would think that weight would become a
    problem here, after seeing how the automatic case feeder tubes
    are mounted, etc.
    Any help here??????

    I wish that someone would answer this, I have one too and would like to know. Adamsribs, you might want to go to www.1911.org and ask there in the reloading section. It is a good board with a lot of pistol specific knowledge. Basically the ts.com of handguns. John

    Thanks for the advice, John. I'll check that out also, just
    thought that some of the fellows/gals here might have some
    experience in that genre. If I find out anything elsewhere
    I'll let you know.....

    Thanks, Don, I'll try that one also. I currently also
    have a request in on the Jouster website, but no replies
    as yet. Perhaps I will be the first person to actually
    buy one and try it? I may have to answer my own question.....

    i have a lee loadmaster and use the bullet feed tubes, change cal easy enough use it on 9mm and 357 . have tube for 44 but havent used it on those. really speeds up loading but dont over fill the tubes seems the weight affected the feed some. wholee lot quicker than trying to hold each bullet. have used it on 30-30 loads with success also

    Thanks, folks, for the replies. They are not terribly
    encouraging, I guess I will stick with the old ratty
    gnarled up fingers..... Rick1, the email address should
    work, just drop the leading 'z' to make it adamkeller@juno.com
    I check my email several times a day, when I'm not out on a
    trip somewhere.
    Thanks again for the help,

    Adam

    I adapted the Lee bullet feeder to a Dillon 1000 loader. What I found was that the time filling the tubes with bullets made up for the time saved. When the tubes were loaded I could really crank out ammo but then you have to stop and reload the tubes. Bullet feeders that don't use tubes are available and are big time savers but much more expensive than the Lee.
