    I paid $90 for a new MEC 600 jr that will load both 2 1/2 or 3 inch shells. Works like a champ..

    The brass on the small gauges seem to swell more than the 12 gauge shells. I would recommend a MEC with a resizer such as the Sizemaster (single stage) or if you prefer a progressive, the Grabber or 9000G. I have the 9000G in .410, and it works great!

    There are many reloaders available on ebay. I just bought a MEC 650 there myself and got it for less than 1/2 price. In my recent search I saw a few set up for .410. You can usually go to the manufacturers web site and get a full description of the product you see on ebay. Good luck.

    You may want to contact Rick Schim at boxhorngunclub.com He had a .410 MEC 600 jr. for sale around $75. It looked brand new.

    If you plan to load a flat at a time you certainly don't want a single stage press. I'd hate to have to load a flat at one time on anything less than a Grabber or a 9000.

    Sprinklerman - For a flat at a time, Grabber. Resizing is usually needed in the 410, so 650s aren't the best solution.

    9000s will work, but many disconnect the auto-advance in the .410, so why spend the extra money.

    600 Jrs are great in the .410, but not at your volume.

    Get a MEC Sizemaster because it re-sizes the brass with a collet sizer. The reloads will function like factory ammo. Over/under guns (especially those with tube sets) are not intended to size reloads on closing! Semi-autos will not function well with improperly sized reloads.

    A MEC Grabber would be the choice if higher production is desired.

    Would you want to load a flat on a Sizemaster?
