    I have a chance at buying a really nice Texan Model M IV Progressive reloader.
    Is it worth getting?? The price is right. What do you think?

    Thanks Deacon Stone

    Have you tried reloading any shells with it? Does it come with spare parts? HMB

    It's only worth getting if it works. HMB

    I sold one that worked very well on Ebay 5 years ago for $125 and the buyer paid shipping. They are great loaders.

    I still use a Texas loader, I have a total of 4. 3 for 12ga & 1 for 20 ga. It’s better used if you resize the shells 1st like The Unloader said. I bought mine all used & been using them for over fifteen years now. It doesn’t like the newer AA shells, but will load about everything else (loves paper shells). I have just about a completed set of shot & powder bushing. I also made an adopter to except Mec powder bushing if I needed an oddball that I didn’t have.

    I think they also had an adaptor to prime with caps. That is the small primer cup like a rifle primer. It would reallign the anvil and seat the new cap. I guess the idea was to save money. Maybe we should do this again with the high price of primers!

    I loved the one I had, first progressive owned. Out of production too long, parts availability nil. I would suggest against it.
