    I reload about 6,000 rounds per year, currently on a MEC single stage. Mostly load 7/8's for 16 yd. Cost aside, which loader would be better. I have not used a PW before and want to make sure it is not to difficult to set up and operate. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I have loaded a lot using both machines. The MEC is less expensive, but I believe the PW is a significantly better machine.

    I started on a Mec, then a Hornday, and finally to a P/W. And, honestly, I liked the P/W so much I became a dealer for them about 30 years ago.

    I also have a Spolar. I like them both, and both are running hydraulics.

    Mecs are a nice machine, but you are comparing an 870 to a Perazzi here. Mec has many stamped parts, whereas the P/W is machined aluminum and steel.

    Acknowleging price differences, both machines are representative. The Mec is cheaper and the P/W is more expensive. P/W's will turn out a reload every 2-3 seconds, a shell that so closely resembles a new shell, they are difficult to distingish. The Spolar is a totally CNC machined machine but is over twice the price of a P/W and a P/W is twice the price of a Mec.

    Buy what your pocketbook can afford and you will be fine.
