    Mine works great. Couldn't be better. Very rugged and a great design. The drain is really handy...

    Mine arrived yesterday and I installed it on my 9000GN last evening. Installation took about five minutes, including removal of the MEC Bottle Support. I haven't loaded any shells with it on there yet but it fits very well, is attractive and appears to be well made. Lou, my check went out in today's mail. Thanks!

    I was considering also using one for powder but now that one is installed on the shot side, I can see there isn't space for two side-by-side. Lou, if you were to offset the bases a little (like an RCBS Grand's reservoir bases), you would incease sales.

    Trying to make a 9000 into a Dillon? Let me see you operate it without letting go of the handle.

    Nothing personal, I've owned MECs since they made the "250". The 9000G I owned cost me $195 and I loved it. However, after using a Dillon, I would never go back to that continual grabbing and letting go of the operating handle to place the wad. Maybe it's better if you're ambidextrous?

    Today I meet Lou from Basic Design Machine at the PA. Trap shoot. He was parked next to me.
    Very nice guy. He saw my name and recognize me as one of his customer. He came up and said Hi. How nice was that.
    We had a small chat and had to go shoot.
    We need more people like him around. Again a nice guy.
    If you guy are thinking of getting the 25lb. tube for your MEC. Give Lou a call.
