    While browsinb the show me your bench thread, I saw a few mec reloaders with what appeared to be oversize bases on the bottles. Does anyone know where these can be found?

    The heavy duty ones, that hold 25 pounds of shot, are made by basic machine co. I love mine, Pm me if you need more infro I will try and dig it up. I would try basic design machine on search bar first.

    I use small bottles on my 9000's. As I don't try to set speed records,thats all I need.

    They are kind of pricey at around $70 I beleive. You can only put one on your loader. Shot side probably as they hold 25+ lbs. They are made of thick plastic. No fear of them ever splitting. I have two, one on each loader. Large mouth for pouring shot into. Yes, I would google Basic Design Machine. The guy is on this forum pretty often.

    Made by Basic Machine Co. However, they haven't made any in over a year. I have been on the waiting list since since last August. If they don't start producing them soon I will.

    That's exactly their attraction Auctioneer.


    Value and quality--neither of which come "cheap".

    The only thing i don't like about is the fact that if you want to change powders you can't flip it back far enough as if it should have been designed with a longer neck down area. Other than that it's nice. Tim

    I use the large MEC bottle and I made a bottle support with PCV pipe for under $4.00; it works for me. BT100dc

    Greevesman, do you have a photo of the one with the shot dump? I am ready to buy a Spolar just for that option, I load pot shoot loads, sporting clays and trap with 5 different shot sizes, and 3 different powders....... Need to make shot changes on my 9000 h easier. Thanks Cory

    I agree go with the bottle with the dump valve, The owner I believe is named Lou, a good guy to do business with.

    A dump valve would be nice on both bottles!

    Would anyone be willing to take some close up pics of these bases?
    Maybe on and off of the loader?
    I would like to see how they are made and attach.
    Thanks,
    Jeff
