    will do Chris.
    As this is reclaimed there are various shot sizes ranging from .125 to .090. I measured 30 pieces of shot last night and the average size was .097". 7-1/2 shot is .095 and #7 is .100". I ran a pretty powerful magnet threw it and it came up perfectly clean.
    I have had some trouble with bridging of the shot in the tube in my Mec900G causing a mess.
    I ordered a drop tube from MEC for steel shot which is suposed to help.
    Also read an old thread from Dan Trap2 that suggests using a 5/8" o.d. copper tube in place of the Mec tube.The Mec tube is crimped down on the end restricting the flow of the shot. Will try the copper tube idea today. I was shooting some of it last Thursday. Found out the charge was only weighing about 7/8 of a ounce, so thats what I was shooting. Both Buzz and I noticed the light recoil, well thats why. I put my 1-1/4 oz charge bar in last night and now it drops alot closer to 1-1/8 ounce. I guess its from the varying shot diameters thats causing this. I will be shooting it next thursday for call birds. You can judge some from that if i'm shooting good. I had been shooting some home made stuff from a guy at Sandy Valley that measured .120" one way and .090 the other, in other words not even close to beeing round, and I was crushing birds to dust with that stuff. Kind of changed my mind about how important roundness of the shot matters. Some will say it patterns terrible and that could be. I'm one that goes by results of broken birds. Last time I checked there was no money paid for the most perfect patterns, 10's win and thats how i'll judge this stuff.If i'm on birds that would normally break and there not thats a big problem. Anyway with shot at $40 a bag plus tax i'm going to fool with this stuff for a while and see how it works. There are definatly some adjustments to be made to the loader that you need to be aware of. If you try it and don't like it i'll take it back without a problem.
    Have a nice holiday

    The 1/2" copper tube solved my bridging problem completly. Cut it to 6-1/16 length with a tubing cutter then deburred the end with a dremel. Measures .630" on the o.d. same size as the Mec Wad rammer tube. The I.D. is a little bigger than the Mec tube and with not having the crimped down i.d. on the end I have no more problems. Loaded 100 shells this morning, no spills.
