I have a question for the shotgun reloading crowd.
I'm thinking of buying a friends Mec 600 jr 12 ga reloader. My question is this...
If I buy this Mec600 jr 12 ga loader, can I purchase a 20 ga conversion kit and just swap out the tooling to load 20ga shells and if so, is it easy and equitable to do so or would it be easier to just purchase a 20ga reloader?
You can do the conversion kit for another gauge. It's not too terrible to swap and reset up. I did for years on an early 60's-era MEC. When Sizemaster's were only $77 apiece some years ago, I bought three in different gauges. It was money well spent for me. Now I complain when I have to swap the charge bars and bushings.
I would go with two individual press. However I would and do use the Universal Charge Bar in mine. No bushings needed what so ever. You can change it out to either of the 600 jr presses. It comes in two sizes so make sure you buy the one for the correct MEC press.
