We are the original manufacture of High Capacity Shot and powder tubes for Hornady 366 and Mec reloaders.

Mec-Max Shot tube for Models 9000 and others

This is our Mec-Max shot tube featured in Average Ed’s column “called a must have product” in September 2010 Shotgun sports Mag. The Mec Max will hold over 25# of shot, and needs no bottle support system, can be order with or without the shot drain.
You can order through our website at www.basicdesignmachine.com

Max-Shotline, for Hornady 366, the dual mount Shot and Powder tube system. Design to limit disruptions during your reloading session. Our dual mount S&P is available with or without a shot drain. Pictured without the shot drain.



Thanks Lou

I have a stupid question...I ordered a shot tube only a few years ago for my 366. Tired of filling up the shot twice for every powder - now its more even.

But I want a bigger powder tube.

The way the shot tube looks on the loader, it doesn't look like an oversized powder tube will fit too....

Have they changed recently? Can I just buy the powder tube?

I believe that was five years ago Jeff. Do you mean Tried of filling the powder tube 3 times to filling the shot tube once? Yes you can puchase just the powder tube. No the design has not changed.

LMAO>..Lou, you're probably right, I'll bet it was 5 years ago.

I'll call you monday. And yeah, I'm tired of filling the powder tube.

You know....I said once that if my hornady every broke bad, I would buy a PW, because I thought I'd like to have one. About two years ago, it broke...wouldn't advance at all. I'm thinking, here's my chance.

It was a damn busted spring under the plate, and hornady charged me $1.55 in shipping for the new part. I'm never going to get a new machine at this rate.

Checked website,it says powder tube not availiable.As above person mentioned,I get tired of having to reload powder bottle twice to every once of my shot tube.Was hoping to purchase an over sized powder tube,but I guess I could order a Mec shot tube and use it for powder.

Hello Chip: The powder tube that I could make, for a Mec machine would only be comedic ,with no performance enhancement. The large Mec tube pairs well with are 25# shot tube.

I just got one from Lou and installed it on my 9000 tonight.

Great fit an I changed the large shot bottle to a powder bottle.

I dumped 25# of shot in without a funnel and no spills! (wife will be proud of me)

Lou needs to come up with a 500 round primer feed and we would only have to charge everything biweekly!

I highly recommend it and Lou is a super nice guy to deal with.
