    Mark, not avoiding your question, but if there's a club where you shoot or plan to do your trapshooting, best way to do it is start asking around there until you find one or two people who reload, who'll help you pick a machine and who'll then help you set it up and get started, with tips, recipes & startup components. That's what a friend did for me, and I've done for others. Hopefully you won't find a shark who's trying to dump an old machine on you. A nice BT-99 or BT-100 would be a purchase you'd never regret.

    I agree with phil if in your budget go right to 9000g It can load just one shell at a time until you get the hang of it. You could even disconect the auto index if needed

    In addition to the MEC 9000g, the Hornady 366 is anotehr good choice.

    These can often be found used, in good condition. Very robust.

    If you start with a 9000G you will never need to go to a 9000H later. You loose the crucial "feel" when using a hydraulic unit. There are things that go on while pulling the handle that your hand will notice that could indicate a problem. This is not the case with a 9000H. They ain't worth the extra money either. If you are going to spend that type of money, buy the Dillon. Guaranteed for life. Yours, your kids, your grand kids.
