1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Hello:
    Anyone have this Mec item that doesn't reload anymore? It is called a MEC EZ Pak,
    it neatly stacks reloaded shells and fills an entire box in one easy step. Gamaliel shooting supply sells them for $10.95. As luck would have it I cleaned up my reloading room and I can not find mine now. I have a strong feeling it was thrown out by mistake.

    I had one and threw away a long time ago. I found out I was faster just putting them in the box.

    Senior, I'll give you the black one (it is new in the box) for $5 plus actual shipping. I don't need to make $ on you. Mike.

    To each his own but I gotta agree with Short Shucker! The only problem with boxing 'em by hand is the bottom row.I have short fingers. With the EZ Pak they stack easier but then the problem is stretching the box out enough to fit over the whole thing, flip it upside down,then as you withdraw the EZ Pak it messes up the top row and you have to re-do 5 more again! Sometimes 10 if the 2nd row gets messed up.I tried bending the sides in a little to help putting it into the box but then it just held the shells more tightly and slowed things down even more.

    Been using one for many years. Works slick and just takes a little practice, as everything...

    I've never had the "mess up the top row" problem with mine. It's about 35 years old and the finish is worn off from shell heads and primers rubbing against when I slide it out of the box.

    I have used one for years and I think they are much easier than by hand

    I use one, but am going to try just loading shells in the box. Dexterity will be the problem with 70 yr. old fingers. Best Regards, Ed

    Not every item made is for everybody. I have one i made and works it pretty slick when i can get him to work(my 16yr old). LOL I think this item is great though for those with dexterity issues. Looks like you'll be set now Steve. Glad your get'n back into loading. It makes it fun knowing you ran 'em with your own home loaded shells.----Matt

    a ole trick of the trade is to make sure the box lid is on the front of loader, that way you can guide the shells into the box by pushing on the box top, which pushes the shells back, and they slide right in.....Grubby

    Years ago I always reloaded with Mec Grabbers, as I always had good loads produced with them. Around 10-15 years ago I sold the grabber and started buying Walmarts 4 paks. I am planning to retire in January, house up for sale, and will be moving to Arizona. One day on a whim, I purchased a new Lee load all for $45.00 and love this reloader. I only shoot about 50 targets a week now and it is perfect for me. It is funny how the older I have gotten, how I have now gone back to basics.

    I use 3 ezpacks on my bench with one for ones that will get tossed , another or both for either Gold or Green STS`s , this way I don`t have to stop to box them when 1 is filled or I fill all 3 then box them and fill the primer tube on the 366 and add powder or lead if needed .

    Idon't even bother with boxing them. Put em in a bucket and count them out before the round. One less step.
