    Excellent choice!
    Are you looking for a used one or a new one?
    If you are looking for a new P&W Whiz White is a dealer and can help you. The new Patriot is an excellent machine with lots of bells and whistles that don't appear on the older models. However, an 800+ would also be a good choice.
    Good luck in your search.

    Click my above website link, download and read my article about buying an <i> 800</i> series reloader, BEFORE you waste your pocketbook.

    The you can make an educated decision to or not to.

    As stated above, the 800 Plus is the only one to consider, or possibly a Platinum. Remember, however, the Platinum is now discontinued.

    Do not buy one of the older models like the 800B. You will save a little but they are much more difficult to use as they do not have removable dies and their resale value stinks. You should be able to find a very nice 800+ on TS for 500 to 600. I bought one for $450 delivered about a year ago and now have 4 of them. Two in 12 ga and one set for 20 ga and one for 28 and they all operate without any problems and turn out beautiful shells. Another thing is to try to get a shell feeder later if you are going to load any volume. They are great.

    Listen to Wiz White in his thread above as he really know his stuff about the PW loaders.

    Here's another plug for the PW 800Plus. I have had mine for a year now, my first reloader and it works as advertised. it's built tough, smooth and easy to operate and does not require a degree in mechanical engineering to understand how it works. Adjustments and regular maintenance are a snap. it just keeps on crankin' 'em out.

    I'll have a used 800 Plus in the shop as soon as I can deliver the new Patriot to my good friend and customer north of the San Francisco Bay area, near where I grew up.

    It is a 12 gauge and I have his 410 toolhead here. Toolhead is not complete, but I'll have it complete soon if things continue to slow down here.

    I'll go through the 800 Plus to make certain it's in good working order, so if interested email me and I'll put a "possible" on it.

    I am selling it for my buddy Ed, so he decides the price, not me, but I he does listen to me (most of the time) - ha!

    The P/W 800 Plus is a great machine. Add the Auto-Drive and you will find that it is very hard to stop making shells.

    I bought the re-loader and it works great. Now I need to find a hydraulic unit for it and may be shell feeder. Thanks for all the advice.
