Hi since I started this thread I thought I would provide a brief update. Never got around to ordering the Lee Press. Last Sunday a friend called and said that someone came to a trap meet at his club with a almost new Mec 600 Jr with auto primer feed for $60, I told him to buy it for me. Long story short, just loaded my first box of 16 gauge hulls, they look great, and the crimp is excellent. Federal hull, 7/8 to 1 oz wad made in Bologna Italy offered by Ballistic Products, 1 oz of 8 1/2 Magnum shot, 19 grains of PB powder with a Federal primer. I am all set to go Sunday at my club. Thanks to all for the good feedback. Glad I stayed with Mec, I already had a 20 and a 12 guage reloader, so charge bars, bushings and bottles are all interchangeable.
