RCBS Pro 2000 video is live! Loading 45ACP

Well, I'm happy to say that with this 1st Pro 2000 video live on www.ultimatereloader.com, I now have HD videos covering *all* 4 5 station progressive reloladers in common use! Many more to come as well!

Here's the link:
http://ultimatereloader.com/?p=782

The RCBS Pro 2000 is a very high quality rig, being the only progressive to offer cast-iron construction. In this video I demonstrate loading 45 ACP with an RCBS 3 die set.

Ever wonder what it's like to use a Pro 2000? Ever wonder how the APS system works, and how the APS strip loader is to use? Well this video will answer those questions.

Here's the station breakdown:
1. Size/deprime
2. Expander
3. Powder charge
4. <NOT used>
5. Seat/crimp

And here's some screenshots from the video playing back:

What's next? More calibers, more die setups, and how about the RCBS bullet feeder on the RCBS Pro 2000? We'll get to all of that.
Happy new year!

Once again a very well produced and informative video... I've come to expect as much.

At first glance the machine appears similar to a LNL but the removable tool head is more reminiscent of a 550B. I find the combination rather intriguing.

Not sure how long it would take to get use to the counter-clockwise indexing or the primer strips but I suspect that it would be a rather short learning curve.

Hadn't seen one before, may research it a little more on the web... wouldn't hurt for the son-in-law to have his own personal press when he comes over to load... pride in ownership and all that. (Besides, I could play with it when he's not here.)

Firstly, happy new year to all!

Gavin:
I'm probably one of the six people on earth who use and enjoy the pro 2000. I still have it set up for the manual index. Don't know if I'm going to do the auto indexing thing yet. As you know it's built like a tank .

Question: does the powder "fly out" from a charged case when it auto indexes?
That would be my main concern and probably the only reason I wouldn't consider setting up a auto indexing setup. It would seem to me that it wouldn't save a whole lot of time. Am I wrong?

Video's are very well done. The RCBS was a toss up for me when I decided to get a progressive, but I ended up with the Dillon 550 on the advice of my local gun smith. I think both are very good presses. Heck the LNL could be almost as good, right Jack?

Almost is for horseshoes and hand grenades... I went on line and read a bunch of reviews on the 2000... think I'll stick with my LNL's and Dillons. Don't see how you can go wrong with either one. I find myself using the LNL's more and more over the 550B but that's just me. I leave the SDB set up for 9mm so that makes things pretty easy.

In case I've never mentioned it before... I'm the laziest thing God ever invented.

I like the RCBS priming system.... I've saw it in action a couple of times, and it seems pretty fool proof. What I don't like, is how the powder measure is not on the tool head. This means you have to choose between powder checking, and separate seat/crimp stations.

It does seem to be a very sturdy machine though...

Another great video.

Dye it red, it'll fit better and we'll be able to find you if you get lost in the forest.

RED is the new color for 2010... didn't ya get the memo?

I was gonna make a comment about your color co-ordination.. . I figured it would be taken the wrong way though, so I left it out..

So now having used all the "big dog" presses, and knowing each has their strong and weak points... Do you have one that is a favorite? I'm sure you get asked this a gazillion times, but I'm curious...

I think they each have their place in the market, and each is tailored to a particular set of use(s) and budget. Stay tuned, because I have a bunch of "super detailed" comparison articles planned for 2010 on www.ultimatereloader.com

Now you just need to do a 1050 and a camdex and all your bases will be covered.
