    I use a 9000H MEC loader which is hydrolic. It is noisy and will often make repetitive sounds over and over which I am able to hear and distinguish what it is saying. Before going to the Grand this year while I could clearly and distinctly hear it say over and over...."you are going to win, you are going to win!" and I did win some events! Other times I could hear it say "get a pizza, get a pizza", but I just figured I was hungry so I didn't pay much attention to it.

    Last night after I got back from shooting in Hopkinsville, I was reloading and the loader was plainly saying..."it's like cheating, it's like cheating!" as I was loading shells with Ballistic Products wads. This time I tried to argue with it but I realized what it was talking about and that it was probably right.....I had shot two boxes of shells loaded with Trap Commander Ballistic Products wads and broke a 24 with each box from the 26 yard line in the handicap event. I then finished the event with shells I normally shot before I tried the BP wads and only broke a total of 40, I couldn't believe the difference those wads made!! It was amazing how easy it was to break targets where the only thing that was different was the type of wads I was using. I think my reloader was right! Biff

    Do yourself a favor and get a PW and use AA shells. Then they'll talk to your gun.

    I've heard Biff's reloader robot talking too! It is noisy and like some trapshooters, it whines a lot and loud. :) I bought another 9000H and it too is noisy like Biffs loader. I'll get around to making it quiet like my old 9000H one of these days. Hap

    Curly, You only gave me one box of shells not enough to do the whole event, so I'm saving them for a shoot off that's bound to occur shooting these new wads, they're amazing and I'm impressed so far. So Curly are you going to Mo Fall Handicap? If so you could do some serious damage to the money pie the way you have been shooting!!!Biff

    For some reason from the name of the thread I thought to my self sounds like a something Biff would think of then I saw the Biff to the side of the thread name.

    Well my P-W can't talk now because it has been sitting all alone for probably 10 years and im sure his lips are rusted together It is probaly trying to say Oil Me Oil Me.

    That didn't feel right.. Where's the marksalot.. mark those shells and put them aside... This results in one in 50 cocked wads.. only found 1 double charge in 35 years.. BUT.. I caught it.. With the unloader.. all I loose is a hull..
