    My name is Jonathan and I'm new here

    Hi, I am a new forum member and I am looking for a good way or a good press to load my .45 acp. I have been checking out the Lee 1000 press. I am just wondering everything Ill need. I know I need the press, a scale that measures the grain, bullets that I load into my spent brass shells. I need a press to flare the casing. Does the lee case do all of these type of action if I get the right dies and the tumbler, the Primer tumbler and the Powder measure kit that is included in the lee 1000 loader? Im trying my best to get into loading my .45 because I used to load 12 gauge shells with my dad and I really enjoyed it and I would like to get into the reloading system. Can someo one help me out with everything I need after I buy the Lee 1000 with the .45 acp dyes?? Thank you very much in advance. Take Care

    Welcome to the forum from SW Ohio. You might want to post your question over on the Defensive Ammunition and Ballistics topics, which has a sub topic of reloading. You'll get a lot more replies from knowledgeable reloaders over there. But Welcome to Defense Carry. You'll find a lot of helpful, knowledgeable people here.

    Welcome and please repost your reloading question in the reloading sub-forum.


    You usually buy a set of reloading dies that you swap out to do all of the actions.

    Welcome from Wisconsin, Jonathan! I hope you find the exact setup that you need for reloading .45 cal. That's something I know nothing about.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
