    I have an old Fenner hydraulic pump that is needing repair. However, I am running into trouble, at shops and online because the model and serial numbers are ineligible. Does anyone know the model number to the Fenner pump that came with the original MEC 8564 Hustler? This way I can locate parts...

    Trying to rock the plug back-and-forth in order to remove the plug on MEC powder and shot bottles has frustrated me for the last time! So I did this little mod shown in the pics. Still the same type of tapered plastic plug as the red MEC plug, but this one has pull rings molded as part of the...

    Anyone know if it's possible to convert an older MEC press from the old style (orange) wad guide fingers to the newer (black) fingers? I ask because I just replaced a worn set with the only spare I have and, in trying to order a replacement, I'm finding that the old style ones seem to be out of...

    I am just getting into shotshell reloading, and picked up a used 9000GN over this past weekend. I already load for my metallic cartridges, but I was wondering if there's anything I need to know that's different. I've been searching through old posts, and there is really a ton of information...

    I reload with promo gun powder using the same amount of powder as recommended by the chart for the shells I reload. How often do you check the load powder weight. During discussions at the club, I was told only check when you open a new container. I check the loads the a lot only to find the...

    i just started reloading 28ga Win AA hulls using an old MEC 650. I have a MEC 20ga resizer which I would like to user to resize the 28 hulls. Can I just buy and replace the 20ga collet with a 28ga collet or do I need to swap out other parts? If I need to buy several parts for the resizer to...

Instead of bumping all of my listings, I will just bump this one as a catalog to my listed items. Just click on any of the links below...

    So my MEC Grabber is acting up after a few years of flawless performance. The trouble I believe is on station 5 'Crimp Close' You can see from the pictures below that the shell body is being creased, and the crimp is shallow with a hole in the middle. The manual states that this can be fixed...

    Wanting to purchase some machines to set up a small 5 stand to practice on.... What are the pros and cons of each brand? Do all of the machines function basically the same way? Is one better than the other? Just trying to get some basic understanding before I make a big purchase. All...

    I recently reloaded about 300 shells at a “sitting”, and the next day, my right wrist was in quite a bit of pain, especially when pivoting my wrist as if shaking hands, or casting a fishing line. It was clear the pain was from the previous days reloading, and one trial stroke of the MEC...

    From what I understand Mec's Model C Shuttle Bar features an adjustable baffle on the shot side, while the powder side requires tradition bushings. I'm wondering if it would be possible to either flip the bar around (so the bar is in the machine backwards), or switch the bottles around so that...

    If I am able to buy a used MEC 650 for $165, is this a good price? It looks to be all there. I may end up having to get a primer tray for it though. Thanks for your help. Jesse
