Went to see a PW 800 Plus that was purchased in 2006. It was used to load about 4000 shells and was in perfect shape. So, for $395 I got the loader, a bushing set, 60+ pounds of shot, 1600 Fiocchi primers, 100 wads, 500+ once fired hulls, and 3 1/2 flats of shells the owner loaded (don't think I am willing to shoot shells someone I don't know loaded). I mounted it to the bench and cranked out about 20 great looking shells. I am pretty sure I did okay on the deal. I may have a mec 9000 for sale.

Don't shoot the reloads.

Cut them and salvage the shot/wads

BTW - great buy. You will love the press.

Get one of those unloaders and save the shot--wads--primers, throw the powder away, not worth the gamble. You got a whale of a deal. Ross

Boys, it does not take a genius to check out the existing reloads. Bought 18 flats 18 mos ago which includes new AA hulls, 19.5 Green dot and 1 1/8 real 7 and 1/2s of mag shot! At $3 a box, I wish I could find more. This year I bought 16+ at $3.25 with top of line components etc. Again, I cut a few so you osha boys would not fear for my life! Anyway, I wish you were close! I would gladly buy and shoot those reloads! Tom Rhoads

Great loader In have 3 one for 16's one for sporting clays and one for caps I just hate changing bushings. I would keep the 9000 as a back up or for a different load.
Enjoy Buddy

I would call the previous owner and ask what kind of powder he used. If you look at the loading data most, not all of the popuar loadings are around 17-18 grains and if you cut a few open and measure them you will know what thet are going to be. Then use a crono on a couple. Bill

Just cut a few open and check them. Then blow some crap up preferably not yourself. :)
