    These contraptions always seem to find me. Take a look.

    An air line hooked to the back, there is a small tube at the base of the hull

    I just KNOW I would get my hand caught in the damn thing. But who needs it anyway if you have a loader that resizes? Just adds two more steps.

    First to resize

    Second to pick the hulls up from across the room.

    Wouldn't be worthwhile for me with shotgun hulls as I use a Dillon and Spolar, but if it could be made with the dies to resize 30'06. 308, etc., that would really be the cat's meow.

    Then, if it could be tweeked to only neck-size rifle calibers, that's really be a hot seller.

    Did you make it or design it yourself?

    It was given to me along with a Hornaday press. I made other dies for the different gauges, but it is more of a novelty.

    Years ago when we graduated from a Lyman Easy to a Texan, PW's were not born yet, we had to use a Pacific collet sizer to prep the shells for the Texan. My Father hooked up air to it off a foot pedal that was some slick. No danger either. Sure do miss him.

    How cool would it be to have the hulls feed into the sizer like primers feed into a PW 800+! A hull-feed track would also make this a lot safer operation by keeping your hand away from the sizer ram? ....Rick

    By what I see how does it resize the base base diameter, plus the brass of the hull, I would compare it with the resizing of a Mec 650 to a Mec 9000 grabber,
    The Grabber does a much better job.

    I did not see the Hull Horseshoe you slide the hull into move out of the way for the hull to be resized, just maybe a air operated de-primer.

    Did not see a Mec Style Collet Resizer assy.

    The 650 doesn't have a sizer so you are right. A 9000 does a far better job. Jeff

    A MEC 650 resizer can be purchased but is the same as the one on the 600's. And you have to do this step totally seperatly from any other step taking the "progressive" out of the machine. I faced reality and bought a Super Sizer. Much better sizer...

    There is a foot pedal that activates the ram. The shoe that holds the shell is tapered on the bottom so that it can be resized within a thirty second of an inch from the top of the base.

    I know people with divots in their fingers from using foot pedals. We'll soon be calling you righthdr.

    I would love to have one that swaged the primer pocket in the Rem hulls.
