    I load with a mec grabber 8567 series (they have the collet resizer)--works like a charm. Put a series 762r grabber(also has the collet resizer--it just has the lower mounting base)--28 ga on this site a week or so ago--didn't get any bites, so listed it on ebay--auction # 220269318157 (last time I checked it was at approx. $30).
    It's fine if your not interested in the auction game--however I recommend you
    consider a grabber.
    regards
    Bob

    I would recommend the MEC 600 Jr if your just starting. You can pick them up cheap. I have two mec relaoders ( MEC 650 & a 600 Jr. )& wouldnt trade them for anything. Search the web on as much info on them before you buy. I found out a lot on the web & it has helped me alot. I bouth both of mine used & have run close to 2000 rounds thru them w/o any problems from the machines.

    My first choice would be a 9000 and then the 8567. I presently use a 8567 for 28's and a 761R for 20's, a 8567 for 410's and 9000 for 12's. All of them work well but for a little more speed the 9000 has it. I reload about 1400 rounds a month and have no trouble with the reloaders. My only problem is when I change loads until I get it right.(adjustments) I keep a 600 Jr in all gauges to fix occasional mistakes. Jackie B.

    Sean, if your new to reloading I would recommend the Mec sizemaster. It will make excellent loads in the 28ga. It is a simple single stage loader that has the best resizer you can get. It is important as a new reloader to start out on a single stage machine until you get used to reloading. After some time if you need to reload on a larger scale you might want to progess to a progressive reloader. You can always sell the sizemaster and get your money back if you buy one used to start with. The sizemaster is great for 4-6 boxes of shells a week. Not to many shooters need more than that anyway. Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff

    The Sizemaster will load the best ammo of about any press. The ONLY negative about it is speed, or lack of.

    Personally, I will only load with a 9000GN. YMMV

    Components and recipe can cause more loading problems than the reloader, especially if your using the new HS AA hull. I've had better luck with Longshot and Universal Clays than the new 20/28 powder. It is difficult to get a good crimp without lots of wad pressure.
