    I'm ready to start teaching my grandson to reload. Rather than start him on a hydraulic PW I pulled out an old MEC 650. The powder measure assembly was broken so I went to their website on Tuesday at 2:00 and ordered one. It arrived at my home in NJ on Thursday at 2:00. WOW.

    First time reloader here.
    Bought a new MEC recently.
    Had some setup problems (suspect that unit was roughly handled in shipping from vendor) and a pre-crimp that falls off.
    MEC helped with the setup issues VERY quickly by emails and immediately sent me a new pre-crimp.
    Outstanding Service!!!
    I will buy another one when I add another gauge.

    MECs are hard to beat. I have also had excellent customer service from Hornady/Pacific and RCBS. I can't say enough good about either.

    Just FYI, Gamaliel is usually quite a bit cheaper on MEC parts, and they have free shipping if you order over $30.

    Had a weld break on 9000G last year. I think I purchased it new the first year they came out.

    Fixed for free.

    The company does not want to compete with their dealers, so they charge retail.

    A good thing for the dealers. Jeff at Gamaliel will treat you right.

    Bought my first Mec in 69 I believe. A 20 ga I still use. That was 43 years ago. I have nothing but praise for the company after 4 decades of usage.

    I started with a 700 VersaMEC and went to a Grabber. Then I just had to try the "better" loaders. I'm now back to a MEC - a 9000E and believe I bought my last shotshell loader.

    Bought one many years ago and after loading countless shells the brass spring in the primer tray broke. I bought a replacement for a few bucks - other than that it just keeps spitting loaded shells. I am for MEC all the way; I have on occasion called MEC and received good advice.

    its easy to break them...... you get a wad cocked in sideways and continue your stroke knowing its going to straighten out like it did that one time and it doesn't....you then raise the ram and push the wad back up the wrong direction and wallla..... broken wad fingers, but only after you do this about three dozen times..... so to correct ignorance i go to my local guy "cody4gold" on trapshooters, and pick up a couple sets, where i recieve ridicule for my own incompetence,for a nominal cost and move on with life.... parts are cheap...

    The fact is, the person who designed the MEC 600 Jr. is/was a genius. What a great little machine.
