    Not much to it. Gets the auto disk up outta the way. Leaks sometimes which is a big problem on a Pro1000 but fine on other presses.

    Whe I say leaks, I mean that occasionally a case doesn't quite mate up and leaks down the die.

    You don't use the auto disk at all? Personally I ditched the disks and use the adjustable charge bar on my turret press.

    I used it for my pro1000 with a pro disk measure, as long as you keep your brass trimmed and chamfered well it shouldn't leak.

    Consistent charges? I normally load with Varget, pinking & GP ammo, not loading bench rest quality stuff.

    I use one on a 4 station turret with the dual disk setup for my .223 It throws fairly consistently but you need to watch carefully for bridging in the small caliber cases with the rod type powders. I had to pull quite a few once when I got complacent.
