    One of the best items I've ever bought. Easy to install and works just great! Nice to put a full bag of shot in at a time...

    Do these only work on the MEC 9000s? I have a MEC 650.

    Yes, if you have changed the measure assembly housing, from the bottle cap style to the new one.

    yes they will work on the 650,grabber and 9000 but you should have the new style measure assembly as in the pic above and not the type with bottle cap fittings. This is a great product.

    Lee,

    I don't see a new style measure assembly on MEC's web page. If I were to go with the new style, I assume I couldn't use my MEC screw-type shot bottles anymore. Is that correct?

    Cool, I have plugs on my tops. I'll give him a call. What about support for all that 25 lbs of weight while tiping back the assy.


    Thanks!

    The change from "old style" (bottle caps) to new style just resulted in a much more robust set-up. The bottle cap style had a problem with breaking off.

    The drain is so you do not have a weight problem with the tipping back. Just drain some or all of the shot before you tip it back.

    I've had mine since they first came out and really like it. No problems at all.

    Guy,

    This is a pic of the old bottle cap style on left and the new style on right, even tho these are single stage measure assy it is still the same concept on the 2 stage loaders. I hope this helps.

    thanks

    The only downfall is that I contacted mec regarding mine using this and they had 3 cases where even the heavy duty style caps broke off when using this item due to the extra weight. They did not warranty this part due to the aftermarket piece I put on. I will try to be more careful using this from now on. An A** still goes out to MEC as they are still always so courtious

    No, I dont think it was all due to using this item. My press was five years old so no matter what I did to my press it was out of warranty. Good product and thanks for making this available to us
