    I own 6 900s...4 that work well and 2 that will soon. I like them because I understand them completely and because I like the support of the center shaft.

    That being said, depending on the age of the 900 you're looking at, you will probably have to do some parts replacing and you may also want to upgrade to a new primer feed and the removable die turret. In the long run it may be wiser to buy a new 800+.

    After using an 800c for some time, I acquired 900. The 900 loaded well but I was programmed for the "click" of an 800C when it indexes and didn't care for 900 because of this. I think you would be wise to get the 800+. It come with upgraded primer feed and the removable die turret saving you around $300 you would need for the 900. Clay

    I have used my 900 for at least 15 years but I don't have any of the upgrades.

    I got NIB PW900 for a good price and have loaded thousands of shells on it without any issues. It was half the cost of a 800+. Mark
