Good question!
Best I remember about the MEC "Champion", it comes with a hydraulic unit and is fully automated. The "operator" only moved the case from station to station and operated the hydraulic unit via foot pedal.

For somebody with that much moolah to toss around, just the price of the loader would purchase a butt load of ammo. Even at today's prices!
Then there are the components.
For a loader that big, you're going to use up 8 pound canisters of powder like they're M&M's!
Not to mention hulls, primers, wads and shot...IF you can find them!


All that will buy cases of ammo.
Why go to the aggravation?

I have one in a 20 ga down in my basement that is just laying there. I use my MEC 9000H all the time.

They are great presses for sure,


I may not be smart but I can lift heavy objects

I have a shotgun so I have no need for a 30-06.....
