    I have 22 reloaders, mostly MECs, I try to have at least one in every room of the house. You never know when you are going to get the urge to reload. HMB

    I have a few:

    Hornady 366 (2)
    P/W 900 Elite
    P/W 375
    MEC Sizemaster (3)
    Mec 600 Junior

    I prefer the Hornady 366 for ease of operation. The P/W 900 Elite is necessary to load Federal papers. The MEC 600 Junior does the .410's.

    Been reloading for more than 40 years. Started out with a Mec 600jr, to a Mec 650, Hornady 366, and more recently to a Mec 9000E and a Spolar Gold with hydraulic. Also reload metallic cartridges (handguns and rifles) using Redding and Dillon equipment. There's nothing like rolling your own. I find reloading and shooting relaxing as most of you do.

    MEC 9000GN's in 12,28,.410 and a Grabber in 20.

    I've got the MEC version of the Automate on the 12. Haven't tried it on the other gauges yet, but it really sped up production on the 12.
