    All Mec progressive models do that. Like the 9000g, 650, grabber, etc. HMB

    PW seats the wad and drops shot at two different stations. Is there an advantage with seating the wad and dropping the shot at the same station?

    Dill does the job. More money better reloader. You get what you pay for.

    Third station, wad goes in, is seated, and the shot is dropped. Unless I don't understand the question?

    I started with a Mec 600, 650 and up. I now use a 9000G loader. I did at one point buy a PW 2000P. I kept it for a year and sold it. The loader I had just had to many problems and the factory I felt did not want to work with me as they should being a NEW loader. I then brought out the Mec 9000G again and it is doing just fine. IF I said IF I get another hair up my back side I will buy a Spolar. It does not have all the bells and whistles but it is suppose to be the R.R of loaders.

    I am not sure that seating the wad and dropping shot at the same station will eliminate the bent petals problem. If a petal is bent going in, will dropping the shot straighten the pedal?

    When I see a bent pedal, I just bend it back as far as I can and put in in the wad guide. Once the pedal is in the hull, it does not fall back to the bent position in my press.

    You may want to look at the MEC9000E ($799) but if you want to spend more (about $2700+) you can go for a Spolar with hydraulic. The former is Auto-Mate powered, fun to use, and will put out excellent reloads in quantity. The latter is an elegant machine (CNC machined aircraft-quality aluminum alloy) that'll put a smile on your face while reloading. Powder drops are especially extremely consistent. Only you can decide whether it's worth the price. Then again, you can buy both; having one load 1 oz., and the other 24.6gms or 7/8 oz. Given the cost of components, particularly lead, the joy in reloading is tailoring the load to suit yourself but ALWAYS with-in the bounds of published reliable data. But you already know that.
