    Will any other brand wad guide finger work in a PW press? Mine just broke and I don't have a spare laying around.

    I posted a WTB ad on this site so if anyone around Rochester, NY has an extra I will pay whatever you want for it. I have an ATA shoot Sunday and don't want to have to buy factory ammo.

    MEC fingers will work.

    PW and Hornady are exact duplicates of each other. Mec fingers are not.

    OMGB above is correct.

    A good sporting goods store should carry the Hornady ones.

    Don't use a Mec one. You "can", but it is much shallower.

    I only want to use a MEC one for today so I can reload and shoot tomorrow. I'll order a few spare PW guides Monday. Whiz do you carry these guides in 12ga?
