I used a P/W loader for 410 years ago and switched to a Mec. Had many problems with the P/W because of the different stations used. Most of the time it was when you try-ed to drop shot, petals would get bent and shot would fly. Mec allows you to insert wad then drop shot all in one station. Very clean operation. I do use P/Ws for my other gages..
im running a pw 950 and it is showing 30,000 on the counter that was reset a couple years ago. I have used mec, h.366 and short of blowing money on a spolar I prefer to stay with the pw. DO you have one let me know.
