    Hi all

    I have heard that one can get a shelve converter to use Mec bushings in a P&W 800 series reloader. If so, where can one get one of these.

    Just as a note...

    Unless you have a huge selection of MEC bushings or the pressing need to use anadapter, Hornady bushings available from Gamaliel Shooters Supply fit the P-W exactly and are available in a bewildering assortment of sizes. The bushing number is also the ID in thousandths of an inch. Use a P-W size chart to figure out what you have and using the Hornady numbers to order what you need.

    The MEC bushings pop in an out of the sleeve/adapter easier than a regular PW does out of the housing. Roll with the adapter for MECs
