    I think there's 2 of them on e-bay right now. Just type MEC in the search window.

    Cheap!

    I use a piece of folded cardboard between the two bottles wrapped with 2" packing tape. Works for me.

    Don't order it from Mec. Connie's has a good price.

    I made one out of a 3/4 pine board. Cut 2 half circles the size of the bottles and put the same seperation as the the plastic bottles with a bubber band around everthing. Works good.

    Do the factory supports just support around the bottles and keep the bottles from shaking or do they attach to the reloader as well?

    They attach to the reloader as well.

    You should be aware that with the MEC bottle support, you can't tip the charge bar and bottles back far enough to run all of the powder and shot back into the bottles. If you change powder or shot size, you might find this inconvienient. If I had it to do over, I would order the supports that guncase Paul is offering.

    FWIW

    Primed,

    If you pull the lever down as you tilt the bottes back there is no problem. A couple of taps on the charge bar and your ready to go. Just remember to reset your index arm before starting up again.

    NO PICS ,, I have no way of doing that, they are just Heavy Aluminum rings that fit over the bottle screw caps and wedge on the top of the bar housing and the bottles fit tightly into the top. Simple but the most effective to stop vibrations!! Tell you what,,, send $27.00 for them and if you don't like them, send them back, I will pay the postage BOTH ways!!!! Thats how sure I am that they are the best................. Paul

    Paul, that is a pretty stand-up thing to do. I like that in a business man. I will be talking to you in the near future about a guncase!

    Same question as ke4yyd. I use a small bottle for shot and the larger bottle for powder.
