Default Lee Pro 1000 old style shell plate vs new style

My old style shell plate doesn't have the indexing holes shown on this shell plate. My question: Is the stud that goes thru this hole on the pro 1000 removable or do I drill new holes in the old shell plate?
Thanks
Martin

I’m confused about the stud that you are talking about. I use Pro-1000 presses and I have both kinds of shell plates (old with no holes and new exactly like your picture) and nothing on my machine uses those holes for anything.

Both shell plates work for me. I really have no idea what the holes are used for.

You probably have an older style Pro 1000.

It's located at the 11:00 position and you have to have a hole (actually 3 holes) in the shell plate or you cannot raise the handle all the way.

What’s the benefit? It sounds as though it would lock a shell plate in to place, but why?

I have both with and without holes, but my Pro 1000 doesn't have the pin. Let me know which one(s) you are looking for. If I have one with holes and you have the same number without, I am willing to trade you.
The pin is to insure the plate doesn't move during the reloading process. My auto breech lock has a pin but is a four state press.
