    what are you opinions on the MEC 600 jr vs the Ponsness Warren 375 and what is the difference with the 375 and the 375 C?

    After having two PW 375 and the way they are set up for 2 different gauges, That is what I would pick.

    If memory serves me right the "C" was the early ones that didn't have the newer style of crimp starters.

    PW has a nice web site, check it out.

    PW also has a nice Pistol reloader based off of the 375, Love it!!

    The C means it came with a factory taper crimping tool set.

    You will get as nice a crimp with the non C as with the C, but the crimps will not be tapered (outsides of the crimps rolled in like on factory ammo to help feeding on auto loaders). For an O/U, it doesn't matter whether the crimps are tapered or not.

    In order to accomodate the taper crimp, the sizer is shorter on the C model.
    The longer sizer on the non-C model supports the hull top better.
    I have a non-C 375 and have never needed the taper crimp.

    I have a 375 set up for 12ga and 20ga, but I don't use it much any more.

    The MEC Sizemaster is probably the best single stage reloader ever made. The collet sizer is the only way to properly size the shell head. You even get an automatic primer feed. The Mec Sizemaster is faster than the P/W 375 because you do not have to push the shell out of the shell holder. The MEc requires six handle strokes to produce a finished shell. The P/W 375 requires seven.

    Forget the MEC 600 Junior and get a MEC Sizemaster.

    The P/W 375 does have the advantage of holding two sets of tooling.

    I own one P/W 375 and four MEC Sizemasters.
