+1 on that.
Trim, where necessary, then prime and load them up on the case collator.
Use a powder that meters easy like W231 or Power Pistol. Red dot, Green Dot etc, don't measure as well. I use the Lee Auto Disk. Works great for me, even with the double disk.
Can't get too excited about the bullet feeder.
After running the pistol rounds through on the Pro 1000, I put them through the Lee FCD on my Lee breech lock.
The videos on Lee site, and Loadmaster site are very helpful. Also you tube. Lot of similiarities between LoadMaster and Pro 1000. I have cut primers in half on the pro 1000 and nothing happened. very safe. However, check for double charges with the W231, bad juju.
Reloading is a heck of a lot of fun.
